Catalan research labs repurposed for mass COVID-19 testing service

Laboratories in three Catalan research centers, including IBEC, will be adapted as Covid-19 mass detection services.

The Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) is coordinating a task force with the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB Barcelona) and the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC), as requested by the Generalitat de Catalunya, to set up mass testing for citizens to stop the spread of the new coronavirus outbreak.
