Validation & Active Installations

At the outset of the Pandemic, we successfully validated the Testing Platform in the field at Institute of Microbiology and Epidemiology of the Academy of Military Medicine of China and State Key Laboratory of Pathogen and Biosecurity, The Academy of Millitary Medical Science, Institute of Microbiology and Epidemiology, Beijing, PRC.

Starting with the launch in March 2020 of Convergys® POC RT-PCR, a fully-integrated system from the viral RNA extraction to onsite reference and central lab-grade results in real-time, Convergent has been a trusted partner in quick and reliable patient triage, isolation and therapy management solutions. Thousands of these tests were successfully deployed in many clinical and corporate settings.

And fast-forward to June 2021, the systems are currently in active use at CDCs, University Research Institutes, Clinics, Tourism Organizations, National Defence, Critical Support Infrastructures and NGOs in EU and in many other geographies worldwide.
