Federal Labs Need COVID-19 Testing; On-Site Access Hobbled says CO-LABS Director
CO-LABS in the news: October 14, 2020 article excerpt from the Daily Camera in Boulder regarding impacts of COVID-19 on the technology industry in Boulder, Colorado included this reference:
"...Dan Powers, director of CO-LABS Inc., an organization that works with and between the numerous federal labs in the state and, among other things, assists them with technology transfer to private industry, said the labs have been hit especially hard by the coronavirus because of risk mitigation protocols within federal agencies.
“They’ve been quite hobbled in some cases,” he said. The inability for people to get on site and use the testing capabilities of the labs has affected the ability to move technology forward, he said.
Accessible COVID testing — rapid testing — is critical to the labs, he said, and necessary to get back to normalcy."
COVID Check Colorado, a program that is setting up rapid testing sites around Colorado, may help, suggested Janine Ledingham, Northern Colorado regional director for Manufacturer’s Edge. She said $12 tests are now available in multiple locations.
UPDATE: CO-LABS arranged a 20-minute webinar to review the options from COVIDCheck Colorado, see that here.
