Opentrons Case Study: Spain COVID-19 Testing Rollout

Using Opentrons COVID-19 testing systems, #COVIDWarriors were able to process 10,000 tests per day across Spain to scale up population-level testing.

The coronavirus pandemic pushed global health systems to their limits. In early March, the World Health Organization’s Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus recommended that all nations “test, test, test” to combat the virus. Without mass testing, he said, countries were trying to “fight a fire blindfolded.” Nearly every health care system in the world adopted testing to track the impact of COVID-19 on their population and prevent the further spread of the virus.

Spain responded by creating #COVIDWarriors and using Opentrons to create a system that processed over 1 million tests in a month.
