In mid-March, Broad converted part of our CLIA-certified lab into a high-throughput COVID-19 testing facility to serve the public health needs of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and surrounding areas. Our team has steadily increased the pace and scale of diagnostic testing. The testing facility processes samples obtained from nasal swabs, using an RT-PCR assay, and has an average turnaround time of less than 24 hours from the time tests arrive at our facility.
Come, take a video tour of Broad’s COVID-19 testing lab with scientists who will explain a novel automation system for COVID-19 test processing that is scalable, modular, and high-throughput.
