During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, a group of leading experts came together to launch the Pandemic Response Lab (PRL) which was announced by NYC’s Mayor de Blasio in August 2020. To meet the exacting demands for SARS-CoV-2 pandemic testing for NYC, our team created a high-throughput pipeline capable of processing samples at the scale of an entire city, at a fraction of the cost compared to existing solutions.
As the world reopens, we recognize the need for fast, accurate and widespread testing and are building out lab services to support that.
