Huoyan Laboratory is a large-scale and standardized nucleic acid detection platform that provides integrated pathogen detection solutions. The name takes the meaning of "hot eyes and golden eyes", and the new coronavirus is "discovered" in the first time with advanced detection technology. Since December 2019, as the epidemic situation is tense and emergency testing needs, in order to assist in the prevention and control of the epidemic, on February 5, 2020, the Wuhan Municipal Government, Donghu High-tech Zone, China Communications Second Aviation Bureau, Shanghai Norui Laboratory, MGI has jointly built the first Huoyan laboratory, and MGI has provided high-throughput sequencing solutions and equipment for the construction of nucleic acid testing laboratories.
This time BGI assisted Hebei’s high-flux air film "Fire Eye" laboratory consisting of 12-cabin Hua Da’s "Fire Eye" laboratory (inflatable membrane version) and 3-cabin Hua Da’s fast-mounted negative pressure hard air film "Fire Eye" (skeleton membrane). Edition) composition.

On January 8, 2021, the "Huoyan" laboratory (air film version), which can detect up to 1 million samples per day, was completed and put into use in the Tennis Hall of Hebei Gymnasium. At zero o'clock that day, the laboratory started construction, which was basically completed in only 10 hours and put into use in 21 hours. At 21:45 that day, the inspectors were ready to enter the laboratory and start work, providing important assistance for the nucleic acid testing in Shijiazhuang.
At 21:45 on the 8th, 47 inspectors from Shenzhen entered the laboratory one after another and started working. It is reported that the laboratory can detect up to 1 million samples per day. The commander-in-chief of the Hebei "Huoyan" laboratory said on the evening of the 8th that the laboratory has received 20,000 samples from counties and districts. As the testing personnel are gradually in place, the maximum throughput will be reached.
At the same time, the first set of hard air membrane laboratory under construction in Hebei Gymnasium is composed of 3 hard air membrane chambers (skeleton membrane version), covering a total area of about 200 square meters, and it is expected that the daily testing throughput can reach 30,000 single tubes after completion. If implemented according to the 10-in-1 mixed detection technology, the daily nucleic acid detection throughput of the hard membrane laboratory can reach 300,000 copies. In addition, multiple sets of hard gas membrane laboratory equipment are ready, and will be flexibly deployed according to the needs of Shijiazhuang and Hebei epidemic prevention and control to quickly increase throughput.
MGI’s “dura mater laboratory” is a fast-loading negative pressure dura mater nucleic acid testing laboratory developed for the prevention and control of sudden epidemics and large-scale population screening. The laboratory adopts a tent-like structure and can be based on actual throughput. It needs to be assembled flexibly, with extremely high flexibility and strong environmental adaptability. It can be quickly installed within 6 hours, and the equipment can be debugged and put into use within 12 hours.

As the core equipment of the Fire Eye Laboratory, MGI’s advanced anti-epidemic tools and equipment will once again assume a key role. In the two links that greatly affect the detection efficiency-sample packaging and nucleic acid extraction, the fully automatic MGISTP-7000 cup processing system and high-throughput automatic virus nucleic acid extraction equipment MGISP-960 independently developed and produced by MGI are currently in Shijiazhuang As well as in many places in Hebei, fighting on the frontline of the epidemic effectively helped BGI's Huoyan laboratory in Shijiazhuang reach a maximum of 1 million samples per day.
Among them, the automatic MGISTP-7000 sub-cup processing system manufactured by MGI can realize fully automated sample barcode scanning, entry and sample sub-packing procedures, with zero sample contact throughout the whole process, and the sub-packing and information processing of 192 samples can be completed within 40 minutes. In the nucleic acid detection, the most labor-intensive and the highest risk of infection sample packaging process work. In addition, MGI’s high-throughput automated viral nucleic acid extraction equipment MGISP-960 has a detection throughput of 192 samples/80 minutes, which is suitable for medium and high-throughput users in enterprises, clinical examinations, hospitals and other fields. One person can operate three at the same time. Significantly improve detection efficiency.

The "Huoyan" laboratory has been established in 16 major cities including Beijing, Wuhan, Shenzhen, and Tianjin, with the country's largest daily detection throughput exceeding 200,000 copies. In June 2020, "Huoyan" laboratory assisted Beijing Daxing. In September 2020, it assisted Hong Kong to complete universal community testing. In October 2020, it assisted the city's nucleic acid testing in Qingdao. It took only 10 hours to complete the construction of the "Huoyan" laboratory; in only 21 hours, the "Huoyan" laboratory was completed and put into operation. Netizens lamented, this is the speed of China! I hope Shijiazhuang can survive the storm!
