The silver lining of COVID-19 has been the extraordinary efforts of people across multiple industries and communities who wasted no time in answering the call for urgently-needed medical products — from personal protective equipment and life-saving ventilators to swabs and other testing supplies. It would be impossible to recognize every person and company that contributed to these efforts, but we can recognize some of them.
One thing to note about this list. While there have been impressive efforts across the in vitro diagnostics community to develop COVID-19 tests in record time, you won't find any IVD companies on this list. Instead, this list was developed to shine a light on the industry suppliers and other organizations that worked behind the scenes with little recognition.
