Asterian’s ArgoLIMS product line provides automation to aid in many of these areas. We can integrate with the instruments and processes you plan to operate under. Using bar-codes from initial collection through specimen receipt, aliquoting, and extraction, ArgoLIMS provides a paper-free environment that reduces the risk of viral infection as materials enter the lab.
ArgoLIMS has been providing new tools to speed up COVID testing since the FDA began issuing EUAs to smaller labs.

There are many challenges labs face when introducing COVID testing. Meeting these barriers requires a multi-disciplinary approach that crosscuts laboratory practices. Some of these challenges are handling highly contagious materials, identifying specific markers of the virus, federal regulations and EUAs, distributing sample kits, tracking patient samples, and then moving the specimens through the necessary steps to ensure the safety of lab personnel and accuracy of testing.
As the world’s top scientists and medical researchers battle COVID-19 at its core, the country’s collective leadership in government agencies, educational systems, travel and entertainment venues, and religious congregations seeks an alternative path. Viral Fencing™ – This strategy is aimed at reducing and mitigating the risk of contagion by taking advantage of high-volume, rapid testing as members enter or re-enter their institutional settings.
