In an effort to control the COVID-19 pandemic and to significantly scale up testing capacity, governments throughout the world have set up screening programmes. In Belgium, the Netherlands, France and Germany, the software systems from MIPS are playing an important role in these programmes by facilitating the communication between the laboratories, the governmental software platforms, and the various agencies that centralise and report on the data.

The new coronavirus which causes the COVID-19 illness still has the world under its spell. Medical laboratories worldwide geared up their PCR testing capacity the last months to detect the virus. Pooled testing, in which biological specimens from multiple subjects are combined and tested in one single test, can substantially improve the efficiency and turn-around-time of a test. Globally there are many laboratories which have developed techniques to perform these pooled tests, and more specific in the countries where MIPS is active, we see an interest and demand in this pooled testing.

In order to enable a broad national covid-19 screening program, the Dutch government took the decision to launch a central IT platform, the 'CoronIT platform'. The rapid connection of all GGD's testing laboratories to this platform was an essential part of the project. In the Netherlands, the MIPS LIS solution ‘GLIMS’ is core to more than 70% of microbiology laboratories and therefore had an important contribution to make to the success of the platform go-live. Today all 12 GGD test laboratories are connected to the CoronIT platform. Further 15 laboratories are to go live in a few weeks.
