The purpose of this page is to keep track of Lab data performed in the various Ampath and National(Alupe , CDC Kisumu,...Kitale district hospital) Laboratories.
Over the past few years laboratory testing have been decentralized with an aim of moving the testing closer to the point of sample collection.As a result of these,some tests that were initially performed at Ampath reference laboratory are now being performed at facility level.These have necessitated the use of manual data entry into Amrs in some of these regions.Two other National laboratories (Alupe Busia & CDC Kemri Kisumu) that are within or closer to Ampath catchment area have taken up viral load and DNA PCR testing for Ampath patients within those regions using the National EID system.Data from these two labs is being processed into Amrs using the MIRTH appliance.
