The emergence of the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 in China in January 2020 led to an increasing number of patients in the country infected with COVID-19, with the total peaking on February 12th
In March, China saw the number of COVID-19 cases start to fall, due to the local authorities enforcing regulations requiring residents to stay indoors. At the same time, other countries worldwide saw the number of infected individuals rise.
To prevent new infection peaks in the country, Chinese customs authorities took immediate action to help control the spread of COVID-19, testing all nationals returning from other countries. This required rapid implementation of COVID-19 testing and automation of sample preparation processes.
The ASSIST PLUS pipetting robot was chosen to meet this need, together with VOYAGER adjustable tip spacing pipettes, Wide Bore and Low Retention GripTips and divided reagent reservoirs, to speed up and organize set-up of nucleic acid extraction and RT-PCR.
