The SARS-CoV-2 virus is a global challenge. In the absence of a vaccine and effective approved drugs for the treatment of severe COVID-19 disease, it is all the more important to identify and isolate infected people in order to slow down the spread of the virus. Testing capacities are urgently needed worldwide, therefore, to increase the number of tests per day, fast and flexible laboratory solutions are needed.
„We have a simple message for all countries: test, test, test.“
The mobile test laboratory from Waldner is a turnkey, self-contained system that requires only electricity, water supply and a place to set up. Even though the current focus is on SARS-CoV-2 tests the system is a fully functional microbiological (virological, bacteriological and diagnostic) laboratory contained within a very small space and is suitable for genetic identification and examinations, molecular biological identification tests and many other diagnostic methods.
It is foreseeable that an effective and safe vaccine for COVID-19 will be approved and available in the near future.
Solutions are needed to provide the vaccine to a huge number of people which will be a major organisational and logistical challenge. It will start with people from the medical/nursing care system and other priority professional groups then we need a plan for those citizens who want to be vaccinated. Depending on the country this will affect between 50 - 80% of the population. To enable this requires a flexible and mobile concept.
In addition to the solutions for which WALDNER provides high test capacity, there is a need for mobile, flexible and speedy testing. The "SARS-CoV-2 Test Van" is designed for exactly such areas of application - it represents our most compact and flexible solution on wheels.
