Moreover, the automated laboratory at Al-Qunfudhah General Hospital has recently been launched. This lab performs all basic and specialized examinations in a fully automated manner instead of manual methods. It is also characterized by a speedy issuance of results, as well as automatic quick sending to the electronic system of hospitals. Furthermore, the lab stores and retrieves samples, when needed, and receives a large number of samples at the same time. This automated system is one of the latest technologies in the world of laboratories and medical analysis.

Noteworthy, the blood lab and blood bank at South Al-Qunfudhah Hospital are equipped with the latest technologies and advanced devices, including the Real-time quantitative PCR Analyzer (COBAS AMPLIPREP-COBAS TAQMAN). This device performs qualitative and quantitative analysis of many viruses, such as hepatitis B and C. It also conducts confirmatory tests after the initial ones. In addition, the viral count helps determine the spread of the virus and its activity in the body, allowing the patient's treatment plan to begin. It serves the endoscopy and liver unit in the hospital, as well as receives samples from hospitals of the province.
