COVID-19 Innovation: McMaster Molecular Medium (M3) – high volume testing that helps preserve the supply chain

The only way to keep up with the COVID-19 virus is to test faster than ever before. Global shortages of nasal swabs and other virus testing supplies, including transport media that preserve the integrity of collected samples, challenge these efforts. Stepping up to solve this problem, MHL Research Director Dr. David Bulir created McMaster MolecularContinue reading “COVID-19 Innovation: McMaster Molecular Medium (M3) – high volume testing that helps preserve the supply chain”

Ontario funds research to increase testing capacity and accuracy

The Government of Ontario is funding research to optimize robotic liquid handling, specimen pooling, and sample preparation to increase testing capacity, speed, and reliability. This project will increase Ontario’s COVID-19 testing capacity and accuracy, while reducing biological risks. The Disease Diagnostics & Development Group in the Research Institute of St. Joe’s Hamilton is collaborating withContinue reading “Ontario funds research to increase testing capacity and accuracy”
