Our Holliston, Massachusetts, facility is working with medical industry leaders to develop and mass-produce COVID-19 rapid diagnostic tests based on lateral flow technologies. An alternative to slower laboratory-based testing processes, these “point-of-care” tests will be able to provide effective results in as little as five minutes and at one-quarter the cost of current options.
