An Independence lab made good on their promise to produce 100,000 nasopharyngeal COVID-19 test swabs for the State of Ohio.
Delivering the swabs is part of Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine’s plan to reopen Ohio after fears of the coronavirus shut the state down.
DeWine would like to see additional testing so the state can open safely, but a lack of testing supplies and personal protective equipment have brought delays.
Roe Dental normally produces dental equipment like crowns and dentures, however after making a capital investment in 3D printers the lab was able to make 100,000 test swabs in one month.
