The Lab Industry Response & How to Protect Your Employees
Dear Lab Professional:
The global COVID-19 pandemic came without warning and is having a seismic impact on labs and the diagnostics business.
The imperative for the industry right now is to develop a safe and rapid method of reliably detecting the virus, preferably at the point of care.
But the first imperative for individual labs is to protect the workplace.
Protecting lab employees from infection is a legal imperative. Implementing emergency response measures to minimize potential disruptions due to a COVID-19 pandemic is a business imperative.
