Large-scale test lab prepared by Sanquin Diagnostics and OLVG Lab

We have to take into account that we will have to deal with pandemics more often in the future. The past year has highlighted the need for a large, efficient test capacity during such an outbreak.

Sanquin Diagnostics and OLVG Lab are preparing for this with the establishment of a large-scale, state-of-the-art test laboratory that can serve more than 50% of the Dutch need. It is a lab that normally already operates 24/7, but which can be scaled up in times of need. To illustrate: the absolute peak during the corona crisis was almost 190,000 tests per day. Watch this video in which we explain everything in detail.
