Using Gilson Liquid Handling Tools to Improve SHIELD T3 Saliva-based COVID-19 Test Workflow Efficiency
I-COVID is a rapid saliva-based COVID-19 test developed by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. We had the opportunity to interview Christian Messmacher, Chief Operating Officer of SHIELD T3, about the company, how their I-COVID test is expanding testing, and how he uses Gilson liquid handling tools to help facilitate the testing workflow.
Here, we discuss SHIELD T3, an organization founded by the University of Illinois to help expand the use of the I-COVID test. We describe their testing method and how Gilson liquid handling products are used to facilitate the workflow.
