Clinical Reference Laboratory (CRL) is one of the largest privately held clinical testing laboratories in the US. As the COVID pandemic arose last year, the lab sought to develop a patient-friendly sample collection experience based on saliva instead of nasal pharyngeal swabs. But the test needed to be just as accurate and reliable as standard SARS-CoV-2 tests.
In this on-demand eCase study, Heather Fehling and Rob Grbac of CRL review how they quickly developed a PCR-based COVID-19 saliva test and then rapidly scaled from 300 samples per day to 30,000 samples per day. They discuss how they optimized their processes with the help of Artel’s Multichannel Verification System and review lessons learned from the project.
