Major League Baseball’s Ambitious COVID-19 Study Relies on Minneapolis Company

Via Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal

“The SMTRL bought 15,000 of the tests from Premier Biotech. The tests provide results within 10 minutes, and Premier’s are among the most accurate tests currently available, Eichner said. Antibody, or serology, tests for COVID-19 usually cost in the ballpark of $10 to $20 each, according to Forbes.”

“It’s unusual that Premier Biotech, which usually specializes in testing for illicit drug use, pivoted to selling antibody tests, but Eichner said that these sorts of changes are the new normal during the COVID-19.”

“‘We’re doing the same thing,’ he said, referring to his own lab’s pivot. ‘People are just chipping in the best we can.'”
