ROE Dental Laboratory has refocused its significant 3D manufacturing capability and employee expertise to the production of essential medical supplies: Nasopharyngeal (NP) COVID-19 testing swabs necessary for COVID-19 sample collection, as well as facial personal protective equipment (PPE) essential for those on the front line in this viral pandemic.
ROE has reorganized its resources to allow for the production of over 150,000 testing swabs and almost 10,000 face shields per week.
“All of us at ROE Dental Laboratory are about delivering precisely-crafted products in a short timeframe,” says BJ Kowalski, president of ROE Dental Laboratory. “When we learned there was a need for NP Testing Swabs and PPE equipment in the fight against COVID-19, we realized that not only did we have the technology and skill to fabricate these but it fit perfectly into our core competencies as an organization. We want to help the cause and get everyone safely back to work.”
