Behind the scenes of Broad Institute COVID-19 test processing

Broad Institute has created a novel automation system for COVID-19 test processing that is scalable, modular, and high-throughput. We serve the public health needs of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and surrounding areas.

In mid-March, Broad converted part of our CLIA-certified lab into a high-throughput COVID-19 testing facility. Our team has steadily increased the pace and scale of diagnostic testing, while also developing test protocols that make them easier to administer and process.

All this being done at low cost, to make it as affordable as possible for the people and communities who need support. As the number of tests performed increases, we are able to bring down the cost-per-test even further.
