Research & Development
The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted research and development across all fields as we work to address the virus. At Paradigm Laboratories, we identified a growing need in our local Arizona communities for quality testing services with safe specimen collection protocols and fast, reliable results. We also developed innovative processes and solutions for COVID-19 testing, including our reverse-transcription quantitative polymerase chain reaction testing (RT-qPCR) testing for SARS-Cov-2. COVID-19 is changing the imperatives for research and development across Arizona, the country, and the world. Pharmacology and medical technology companies are finding themselves on the frontlines of addressing this crisis, establishing a recovery process, and reimagining the next normal.
Paradigm Laboratories already provides diagnostic and molecular laboratory testing services and will be supporting the future of research and development in response to COVID-19. Clinical trials and other early-stage research and development activities can benefit from Paradigm’s expansion of testing capacity in response to COVID-19 beginning in April of 2020. Paradigm has also expanded its procedures and protocols for safe and effective collection of specimens, testing, and communication of results. Paradigm has also partnered with state and local health departments to provide the testing capacity to help meet testing goals through our comprehensive testing services.
The COVID-19 outbreak has prompted Paradigm Laboratories to establish an even greater commitment to safety standards and protocols across all aspects of testing services. We are prepared to partner with communities and organizations to provide effective strategies for continuing to protect patients and employees as new therapeutics and vaccines for the virus are developed. High-level personal protective equipment standards and regulations will help in protecting employees of laboratories, at testing sites, and in transportation to various facilities. As communities work to address the spread of COVID-19 and vaccine distribution, Paradigm Laboratories is committed to providing testing services and on-site solutions that will allow for maximum accessibility across state and local communities.
