Columbus, Ohio (April 10, 2020)—At Battelle Memorial Institute, based in Columbus, innovation has been a central theme of the non-profit's response to the pandemic. Battelle quickly developed new procedures that produce substantially faster results in coronavirus testing. Additionally, Battelle was awarded FDA approval last month for a new product that can disinfect N95 masks at a clip of 80,000 per day. In addition to servicing Ohio hospitals, the equipment has been shipped to other hard-hit metro areas across the country.

"Those of us that are deeply involved in all of this, we have a commitment to try to help people. That is very much the culture and spirit in a place like Battelle where our mission is to serve the greater good," said Justin Sanchez, a tech fellow for life sciences at Battelle. "This is a time where we all need to step up. This is a time where it is all hands on deck to solve a problem. We need to use our talents and our abilities and our resources to stop this pandemic."
