“From June 10 thousand tampons per day”
“From Monday 1 June in Emilia-Romagna we will have five new machines: once they are put all ‘online’, that is, from the middle of the month, they will guarantee us a potential 10,500 swabs per day in case of necessity. Attention to the terms, however: potential means that we do not do them to anyone, regardless of precise medical protocols, but with reference to the criteria of the Istituto Superiore di Sanità “. During the presentation videoconference of the communication campaign on “New healthy habits”, the regional councilor for Health Policies, Raffaele Donini, focused on the topic “swabs“.
“Talking about criteria – Donini underlines – means, for example, that tampons are made to symptomatic and paucisymptomatic patients, to their families, to people who have come into contact with positives, to patients of the homes for the elderly, the Cra, to patients in access and discharged from the hospital and in places where we suspected that there may also be children outbreaks. And, of course, to those who test positive for antibody test: currently, this is the most consistent ‘category’ of positives in Emilia-Romagna. I want to remind – adds the commissioner – that, in addition to the tampons, we are also carrying out about 5000 serological tests per day. Based on this strategy we are emptying hospital wards is intensive care, taking early care of the positive cases, most of which show no symptoms “.
Going back to the tampons, “already today, with the means available – explains Donini – we can reach about 7 thousand a day; with those who arrive, we could therefore reach 10 thousand in the coming days, as we have always said. The goal – concludes the councilor – is to get to at least 15,000 potential swabs a day in the fall, so as to be ready, naturally hoping that there is no need, to deal with a possible resurgence of the virus “.
The machines for tampons
To date, the Regional Health System has implemented – Parma is assembling the tool which will be fully operational from Monday 1st June – the systems Panther (by Hologic) which have the potential to manage 700 swabs every 20 hours. There are two a Pievesestina (Cesena, Ausl Romagna), one in Bologna (Sant’Orsola) and one a Parma (University hospital), for about 2800 tampons per 24 hours. An amount that is added to the 6500 buffers that already exist today as a global network potential.
Still on the subject of global availability for all 3 centers, but in terms of reagents (always Hologic), it is 42,000 swabs per month (they are already in order); we will always start using them from next Monday. From 1st June, with Hologic technology, Emilia-Romagna will reach a capacity of 9300 tampons per day.
At the same time, five Masmec machines will arrive, characterized by the extreme flexibility of use of the reagents. The number of swabs that each Masmec machine is able to process (always within 24 hours) is about 240. In mid-June all 5 will be “on line”; Emilia-Romagna will therefore be able to add another 1200 potential buffers per day (global for the network) which, added to 9300, give a total of 10,500.
