On December 7, 2022, members of the Tiny Township Lions Club visited the Laboratory at Georgian Bay General Hospital (GBGH) to bring them a cheque for exactly $7,523 – the cost of a new microscope.
The microscope at GBGH is utilized 24 hour per day, 7 days a week, 365 days per year. This vital analytical tool allows lab technicians to manually review, interpret and make clinical determinations for urine samples, hematology results or matching blood samples for transfusion.
New microscopes have better optics, include video functionality to view work on a computer screen and are much more ergonomic.
