COLUMBUS, Ohio, (March 30, 2020)—Battelle and The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center have jointly developed a new rapid, sensitive diagnostic test for COVID-19. The Ohio State Wexner Medical Center will administer the new test under its existing FDA certification permits. This will increase and improve test processing in Ohio according to existing state clinical guidelines.
The new rapid test will allow for faster turnaround time on test results, which will help “flatten the curve.”
