A Sandia-constructed sampling booth is used to collect COVID-19 samples, protecting the healthcare worker and minimizing PPE use.

COVID-19 diagnostic lab operations

Led by bioscientists collaborating with Employee Health Services, Sandia set up and operated a COVID-19 diagnostic lab for Sandia and local DOE personnel to monitor workforce health and assure continued operations. Sandia was the first national lab to establish an on-site diagnostic lab, initiating testing 21 days from the start of the effort, and was the first national lab to receive Emergency Use Authorization from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for its diagnostic protocol.
