Las Vegas software company, GoMeyra has announced plans for a new technology that will speed up COVID-19 testing, promising same day Coronavirus test results. Using Cloud-based technology, the company claims their solution will bypass the need for manual input. This will cut the overall time it takes to assess samples and decrease the possibility of human error.
Using the information management systems LIMS, labs using the software triple the testing capacity, allowing professionals to deliver same-day Coronavirus test results. With the integrated use of mobile apps, people can be informed of their results via text, and act accordingly.
The social, economic, and public health implications of having such a speedy testing method would be a game changer amid the pandemic. Faster testing would allow people to resume with daily life sooner; attend school, go back to the workplace or even travel in one day as opposed to longer.
“Now this is in cloud-based. Once arrived, results are uploaded into the system. Medical director could be anywhere anytime they can be able to prove results and immediately release those results. Otherwise you have to wait to process the results overnight. The next morning, the medical director shows up, goes through it and releases the results,” Jaswant Tony, founder and CEO of GoMeyra, told 8News.
Most of the world has accepted that we will be living with COVID-19 for some time to come. Many speculate the pandemic to stretch on well into 2021. As such, new mass testing methods that integrate multiple information management tools and efficiently deliver Coronavirus test results are much needed. GoMeyra LIMS is just the system, and we will probably see more tools like this being used by labs around the world as we continue to adapt to COVID-19.
