How to Keep COVID-19 Prevention Initiative Strong
While we settle back into our pre-pandemic lives, it’s important to remember that COVID-19 is still a prevalent threat, even if it doesn’t receive the media attention it once did. In the US alone, there are still approximately 30,000 to 70,000 COVID-19 cases per day and nearly 3,000 deaths per week.
It’s essential to remain vigilant and maintain an effective COVID-19 prevention initiative to protect our communities. Testing and screening for infections are key components of such initiatives, allowing patients to be aware of their infectious state and take the proper precautions to avoid infecting others in the community.
Supply Chain Reliability: "Getting Tests When You Need Them"
Supply chain reliability is at the heart of effective testing programs. If you can’t get a hold of enough tests to test the community adequately, then the efficacy of the testing program is limited. This was a common issue throughout the first two years of the COVID-19 pandemic. The lack of tests was one of the key issues preventing pandemic management.
The limited global availability of reagents and conjugates and the closure of manual assembly sites greatly reduced the test output of many diagnostic test suppliers. This can be particularly problematic for a diagnostic test manufacturer when simultaneously handling several different raw material suppliers (e.g., suppliers of reagents, nanoparticles, conjugates, swabs, cassettes, etc.). Each component adds vulnerability to the supply chain. If one partner cannot supply their component on time, the entire manufacturing and assembly line is held up until the component is restocked.
That’s why reliable testing supply chains are essential to managing the pandemic. At CorDx, we understand this challenge and have developed strategies to ensure that our supply chain is both reliable and resilient. We proactively mitigate supply chain risks, optimize the supply chain with KPIs, include raw materials and components to control the entire supply chain, and localize manufacturing activities where they are needed. By controlling the entire supply chain from raw materials to final assembly, we provide our customers with the testing supplies they need to effectively manage the pandemic.
Test Accuracy: "They Have to Work"
COVID-19 lateral flow tests are vital tools to detect infections within the community. The accuracy of such tests is affected by the risk of having been in contact with someone with COVID-19 and the time since exposure or symptoms started. Furthermore, the quality of raw materials used, general assembly, and use of the test also affect accuracy. However, reliability is primarily affected by the manufacturing process and the quality of materials.
The importance of accurate test results cannot be overstated in pandemic management. With accurate results, healthcare providers can quickly identify infected individuals and dispense healthcare advice to prevent the spread of the virus. CorDx provides accurate tests for COVID-19 under an EUA authorization. We maintain quality, accuracy, and reliability by using premium raw materials and components and utilizing quality process standards.
Cost Efficiency: "They Have to Fit Your Budget"
COVID-19 tests must be affordable for communities while maintaining accuracy and reliability. These tests are instrumental in protecting communities, and high prices only hinder the protection of low-income communities against COVID-19. As such, suppliers of diagnostic tests for COVID-19 (and other diseases or conditions) need flexible pricing models to ensure all communities can benefit from effective COVID-19 prevention initiatives.
Cost-efficient testing is particularly important in managing the pandemic and protecting communities. Different tests come with different economic models. However, antigen tests (e.g., lateral flow tests) are often more cost-efficient and lend well to repeat testing (or serial testing). However, the price of antigen tests varies among suppliers and regions. This is due to their supply chain models, availability of supplies, quality, and demand.
At CorDx, we understand that a steady supply of affordable and quality COVID-19 diagnostics is essential for institutions to launch and maintain effective COVID-19 prevention initiatives. Our strong supply chain helps to maintain a steady stream of quality diagnostics for our customers. What’s more, CorDx’s end-to-end supply chain and quality manufacturing processes are key to making reliable diagnostics at affordable prices.
CorDx provides COVID-19 tests at affordable and flexible prices for institutional orders. If institutions want to order COVID-19 tests for their communities, CorDx will provide reliable quality tests for reasonable and affordable prices.
In conclusion, CorDx understands the importance of a strong COVID-19 prevention initiative, which involves effective testing and screening programs. Our reliable supply chain ensures that customers can get the testing supplies they need when they need them, while our commitment to accuracy and cost efficiency ensures that those tests work as intended and are affordable for all communities.
