Todos Medical Inks Preferred Supplier Deal With Pangea for COVID-19 Tests

NEW YORK – Todos Medical said on Wednesday it is partnering with Pangea to be its preferred supplier of COVID-19 testing products.

As part of the deal, Todos will be the preferred supplier of such products for Pangea's offerings for contract tracing and so-called COVID-19 passport services in Israel and parts of Africa. Todos said it will also integrate and tailor Pangea's technology into its service offerings in the US, Canada, and Mexico to create "COVID bubbles" for employers, schools, sports leagues, and other clients.

Financial and other terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Israel-based Pangea is a supplier of digital identity, security, and ePayment solutions.

Earlier this week, Todos, also headquartered in Israel, announced a sales agreement with an unnamed laboratory in Wisconsin for a $23.8 million contract. The lab, it said, has an agreement with the state of Wisconsin to supply COVID-19 PCR tests. 

Todos will supply the lab with testing equipment and supplies, including automated extraction machines, liquid handlers, and PCR instruments.

The initial contract is for eight months, and Todos has been granted a priority right to supply the lab with up to 100,000 COVID PCR tests per day if the lab sees significant additional testing demand.
