To curb the spread of the coronavirus, it is incredibly important that anyone with symptoms can get tested. That shows why the tests are so important for public health and the fight against the coronavirus. At the moment, there is a global shortage of tests. By working together, we hope to quickly eliminate that shortage.
Rompa/ITB began its production of corona tests in September of 2020. At the time, the project ran with only one injection-moulding machine.
Given the high demand for COVID-19 tests, multiple additional moulds have already been built to allow for more and faster production. Usually, building and implementing a new mould takes around six months. This time, Rompa/ITB managed to get it done in just two months - all without affecting its normal activities. That is a great example of teamwork!
