From Rapid Testing in Low-Resource Countries to Ventilator Splitters
In a global pandemic, one size does not always fit all when it comes to protective gear, equipment and diagnostic testing.
Take, for example, the varied environmental factors that impact diagnostic testing methodologies. What might work in urban settings such as New York City may not work when trying to reach remote communities in a developing country where transportation is difficult and lab facilities are hours away.
Inventors and innovators across all sectors are racing to develop new hardware devices and finding new uses for existing technologies to fight the pandemic and save lives.
