In 2010, Star Storage and the Noi Orizonturi Familia Association, the wards, the procedure and bandage rooms, the play room and the sanitary blocks were renovated. Moreover, the department was provided with furniture and the necessary medical equipment.
For the year 2011-2012, Star Storage together with the Association Noi Orizonturi - Familia aim to improve the conditions in the molecular genetics laboratories for the acute leukemia diagnosis and for infections detection of the immunocompromised/transplanted patients, by procuring suitable medical equipment.
Moreover, we decided to purchase some of the essential components for the laboratory, such as the automated platform for the Zeiss microscope and the specific reagents needed for the implementation of new molecular biology analytical methods that are important for the detection, confirmation and monitoring of the minimal residual disease in children with acute leukemia. This allows patients classification into risk groups, contributing to the disease management improvement and important medical decision making on short and long term with the aim to increase survival in children with acute leukemia.
