COVID-19 Update: How LabWare is preparing and responding

Since mid-February LabWare has been actively working with public and private sector organizations around the world to apply our considerable know-how and advanced technology to implement COVID-19 testing capability as well as other workflow and operational efficiency enhancements to increase laboratory testing capacity to meet unprecedented public health testing demands.

Our efforts include assisting in the efforts to expand the NHS COVID-19 testing operations in the U.K.; providing laboratory management software for a new COVID-19 laboratory in Sao Paulo, Brazil; assisting U.S. public health customers implement new COVID-19 tests and communications protocols for reporting to the CDC; adding/expanding COVID-19 testing capabilities throughout our public health customer base in sub Saharan Africa, and assisting Canadian public health customers with performance improvements to handle the surge of COVID-19 tests.

We are developing solutions that leverage LabWare's mobile technology to streamline the COVID-19 patient registration and sample collection process as part of field-based specimen collection and COVID-19 testing operations. These solutions are being deployed at our state public health lab customers.

NIAID scientists and grantees are well positioned to rapidly develop COVID-19 diagnostics, therapeutics and vaccines. These projects include conducting basic research to understand how the virus infects cells and causes disease, and what interventions can prevent and stop the spread of disease. In fact, within two weeks of the discovery of COVID-19, NIAID researchers had determined how the virus enters cells. And within two months sites had begun Phase 1 trials of a treatment (Remdesivir) and a vaccine (mRNA-1273).
