Amidst the Covid-19 emergency, we wondered how we could help the healthcare system with our competences. In this context, the flexibility and spirit of innovation that have always been our trademark have a new meaning.
We are experts of component testing, so with the coordination of the rector of the Polytechnic of Bari and his team, we quickly set up a test system for the medical masks manufactured by companies that have converted their production to supply this kind of equipment.
Since we develop automated platforms for molecular diagnostics, we can provide them to hospital laboratories to speed up Covid-19 diagnosis, at a stage where processing a high number of samples is of crucial importance. In few days, with the Polyclinic of Bari, we validated a protocol to automate swab test setup and we are manufacturing other platforms required by different Italian regions.
Technology can greatly contribute to overcome the crisis and we are trying to do our part, now more than ever.
