Support to fight the corona virus

35,000 pairs of disposable gloves, 200 respiratory protection masks, 100 mouth-nose-masks, 60 safety goggles and various protective suits – this donation was handed over earlier this week as immediate aid for Dresden hospitals by the scientists of the TU Dresden Johannstadt campus. The Center for Molecular and Cellular Bioengineering (CMCB) with its research institutes B CUBE, BIOTEC and CRTD, as well as the Paul Langerhans Institute and the Buchholz-Lab of the Medical Faculty participated in the donation campaign that is organized by the alliances DRESDEN-concept und Biosaxony.

The scientists also directly support the Dresden University Hospital: They provided a specialized qPCR device that also can perform virus tests. Together with that tool, two CMCB experts support the corona core team at the University Hospital.
