Market research firm Kalorama Information has made available to hospitals and clinical labs a database that lists the installed base of diagnostic assay instruments that can perform tests for SARS-CoV-2 infection and COVID-19.
Kalorama's Clinical Masterfile includes a section that lists 1,787 instruments installed at labs that can run assays for COVID-19. Data from the Kalorama database can be used by hospitals, labs, and diagnostic test developers to find each other and get the necessary kits, reagents, and controls required to perform COVID-19 testing.
Kalorama is also releasing a database of 157 instruments that can be used to perform COVID-19 testing with staff training and adjustment for laboratory-developed tests. The data include lab names, addresses, phone numbers, instrument manufacturers, and device models.
The information will be available free of charge through December 31, 2020, on Kalorama's website.
