As the largest inflatable laboratory in China, "Falcon" was set up to help speed up testing for the coronavirus.
In the laboratory, 150,000 test runs per day are performed. To save time, 10 samples at a time are processed.
With this method, the laboratory can test as many as 1.5 million samples a day. Such labs have proven effective in containing the virus in other cities, including Nanjing, Guangzhou and Shijiazhuang.
The equipment was put into use on August 11, and has already participated in several rounds of large-scale nucleic acid testing in Yangzhou, testing more than 210,000 tubes and covering more than 2 million people.
