Medical Alley, Minnesota (March 12, 2020) – In a remarkable feat, Mayo Clinic has developed a new, faster test for COVID-19. Since the outbreak of the pandemic, Mayo Clinic Laboratories has worked nonstop to create the test, a process that would normally take months or longer.
Mayo Clinic’s initial capacity will deliver 200-300 tests daily. Mayo Clinic is providing support and investing in equipment and materials to increase that capacity in the coming weeks. The Mayo test can produce results in hours, much faster than the days required for most current test methods.
“Mayo Clinic’s rapid creation of a test for COVID-19 is a demonstration of Medical Alley’s ability to swiftly respond to the world’s most dire healthcare needs,” said Shaye Mandle, President & CEO of the Medical Alley Association. “As the global epicenter of health innovation and care, the Medical Alley community is focused on this crisis. Mayo Clinic innovation and leadership is at the forefront of protecting the health of a threatened global population.”
Mayo Clinic has several resources available to help educate and protect against COVID-19’s spread and impacts. You can find them all at Mayo Clinic News Network – COVID 19, which includes all Mayo resources on COVID-19 and is updated regularly.
