We are providing 500,000 urgently needed COVID-19 tests per week to the Canadian federal government for use across Canada.

Social distancing

We have followed guidelines to minimize interaction between people, including:

  • implemented a work-from-home policy for all staff that are able to do so
  • pause on all travel and in-person meetings, instead leveraging the variety of technology options at our disposal to maintain close communication

Business continuity

We recognize during the quickly-changing time that customers may wish to increase their stock of our products. We are able to accommodate these requests. To inquire about additional stock, please contact

We remain focused on maintaining delivery and support of our products, including:
