March 2021 LigoLab Newsletter: Learn what steps this laboratory took to combat the rise of COVID-19 variants and how other labs can do the same
For Atlas Genomics, the Quality of the Test and the Speed of the Result are Critical
Atlas Genomics is a CLIA-certified high complexity molecular diagnostics laboratory that recently gained a bit of notoriety among its peers. The Seattle-based laboratory was one of the first in the country to detect the United Kingdom coronavirus variant known as B.1.1.7. The variant was detected with a PCR test and later confirmed with off-site RNA sequencing.
Fast forward to today and Atlas no longer needs to send out samples for variant confirmation. That's because they've brought RNA sequencing in-house. Learn how this step and others were put in motion during the early days of the pandemic, and how those early decisions have helped keep King County residents safe in this LigoLab Case Study.
