Cutting Edge All-in-One Equipment Can Turn 600 Square Feet Room into COVID-19 Testing Lab

Vessel Medical (Greenville, SC, USA) has introduced Lab in a Box which comprises cutting edge all-in-one equipment that can turn a 600 square feet room into a COVID-19 testing lab.

Developed by scientists and technicians in partnership with Hamilton Company, Thermo Fisher, Grenova, and Premier Medical Laboratory Services, Lab in a Box enables a high capacity of onsite diagnostics for hospitals, expanding laboratories, schools, and large companies in need of quick and accurate testing results. The turnkey equipment that includes everything needed for professional laboratory level diagnostic is expected to radically change the landscape of COVID-19 testing. Each turnkey lab solution includes the latest cutting edge technology that is pre-validated - all that is required is a brief onsite validation before testing can begin. With precision robotic instruments, Lab in a Box has high throughput liquid handling along with automated, custom-programmable pipetting that decreases human error and result turnaround time. Additionally, Vessel Medical’s Laboratory Information System (LIS) that is included reduces the result analysis time while increasing capacity exponentially. The key features of Lab in a Box help companies to begin testing and to maintain a testing flow uninterrupted.


Aside from COVID-19 assays, companies, expanding labs, and organizations can easily pivot their workflow to include detection of other common pathogens as well as genetic testing with upper respiratory, antibiotic resistance, pharmacogenomics, cancer risk screening, Flu A & B, and Std/UTI assays. Vessel Medical expects in-house testing with its Lab in a Box to allow companies to save millions of dollars annually in testing expenses. For example, a company that processes 3,000 tests per day can save just under USD 200,000 per day when compared to outsourced testing, while companies that process 12,000 tests per day can save up to USD 600,000 per day with its turnkey equipment.

“We developed Lab in a Box with the goal of providing the most efficient solution for companies and organizations to provide quality COVID-19 testing,” said Kevin Murdock, Founder of Vessel Medical. “This equipment conveniently provides the most cutting edge technology for accurate testing while saving time and money. We’re happy to help protect businesses, organizations and the people who work for them.”
