Omega Bio-tek is assisting scientists, researchers and healthcare workers around the globe in accelerating the screening and detection of the novel coronavirus disease, COVID-19. We are supporting several Laboratory Developed Tests (LDTs) by providing high-throughput, automated viral nucleic acid extraction methodologies. To meet the exceptional and immediate need for supplies, Omega Bio-tek created a more robust kit, Mag-Bind® Viral RNA Xpress Kit, and has the capacity to support 6 million patient tests per month. Omega Bio-tek is working alongside scientists in providing extraction technologies to expert technical and automation support in quickly establishing pathogen detection workflows to curtail the escalating spread of COVID-19.
