Government acquires the state of the art liquid chromatography mass Spectrometer machine used to detect liquid poison in human, drugs and chemical residuals.
The 2.8 billion shillings machine that has been commissioned today by the state minister for Internal affairs, Obiga Kania, can handle up to 100 samples a day and produce the results in five minutes.
While commissioning the machine at the government analytical laboratory in Wandegeya, Kania noted that there will now be ease in detecting complex crimes.
Kania also revealed that scientists will be able to detect the type of poison and avert preventable deaths.
In a related development, the director government analytical laboratories Kepher Kuchana Kateu and the commissioner Tarsis Byamugisha reveal that the machine which costed over 2 billion Uganda shillings will speed up on the case reported over toxication though it now calls for much more funding as the reagents used to carry out tests call for huge sums of money.
