      Abstract

      Testing volumes need to increase by orders of magnitude in order to restore communities back to normality. This workshop focuses on solutions that equip laboratories to participate in expanding testing and screening regimes for students, office employees, athletes, tourists, and more. In this webinar, we will cover effective strategies for establishing such testing channels, the operational requirements, and testing solutions that are up to the challenge.
