East Bay pop-up laboratory to improve speed of COVID-19 test results

U.C. Berkeley says by next week their robotics lab should be able to analyze 1,000 novel coronavirus test results in a single day.

This news comes as we continue to hear horror stories about the lengthy wait times to get COVID-19 test results.

“It’s hard to say how many we’ll do initially but we know we will have the capacity to ramp up to about a thousand a day and potentially higher than that,” Dr. Jennifer Doudna, professor of molecular and cell biology and of chemistry said.
