    Well done and the free publicity is incredible just like the POC test.
    Dr Abbott would be proud!

    With over 18,000 ID NOW molecular point-of-care testing units already in place in U.S., this is a game changer. We need the data to get real time info on extent of this virus.

    Diagnostics put out a diagnostics test? Wow. America needed this 4 weeks ago. The stock/company PR self-congratulatory tour Miles and Ford did with the angry fat Wall Street guy was embarrassing. People are dying. And still can’t get tested. Too little. Too late.

    FDA didn’t approve it till late last week. It was submitted in February. Quest, LabCorp and Roche, are getting preferred orders as many providers and hospitals are Fkn us and don’t want to switch to ABT test yet and are playing out ABT. That has been addressed today and you damn well better believe it’s been corrected big time! Can’t Blame Abbott, Trump or even the pitiful Dems who we know distracted the nation and DJT with impeachment charade when Virus originated in Dec/Jan. I think Trump knew what was coming 3 Or 4 weeks ago, but mainly for national security (no joke) and secondly economic reasons (pride) played it down. He didn’t want to panic AMERICA. This lockdown will hurt the economy. It won’t bounce back as quick as people think. LONG time before we are back to where we WERE. Not saying it won’t get better in a few months but as far as long term TOTAL recovery I’m talking YEARS not months. The way we socialize will be forever changed. Things will be done differently, Pharma reps should not take this lightly. Virtual detail been developed and tested and thrown around for last 10 years and NOW it’s coming permanently. Samples will be shipped by courier services and reps will be obsolete. I see massive layoffs in Pharma sales BUT massive hiring in Pharma production plants with APIs and other ingredients made in USA instead of China. The only way this happens is if Pharma is FORCED to not rely on China. Pharma likes the current flawed system where we are at mercy of China. As far as White It’s par for the course that big time republican and donor Miles is hob nobbin with greedy wolfs of Wall Street. Just another player playing the GAME. I agree on that aspect. It’s Disgusting!!! The rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Alway was and always will be. The whacky Dems and AOC and the Bern do have SOME (Very little) valid points.

    Hospitals, Clinics, ER's, Senior assisted living centers, physician’s office, or mobile units. Anywhere mobile. They are about the size of a toaster and and fit into an convenient carrying case.

    Diagnostics leadership has always done the heavy lifting within this org. Glad to see them get the recognition finally.

    Doctors and Nurses are the real heroes, not devices and diagnostics. You’re misinformed and spewing false data again. Go away.[/QUOTE]

    Yes the ones in Brooklyn and Queens area are but the others in the unaffected part of country posting dance videos in empty hospitals are now laid off. Hospitals are empty. You sound like an unskilled laborer from third world country.

    This red letter guy has no clue on Remdesivir- nearly everything he states is false. My guess is he sold GILD stock short and is getting crushed for it. Follow the Science, Remy looks very promising!

    We have a new antibody test that detects previous Covid infections. We will distribute 4 million antibody tests this month, then up to 20 million tests per month in the U.S. in June.
