WESTBROOK, ME (April 27, 2020) – Everyone has been touched, directly or indirectly, by people and companies who have risen to the challenge presented by today’s unprecedented COVID-19 viral outbreak. From front line medical staff who willingly put themselves in harm’s way in order to care for the stricken to multinational companies focusing their expertise and resources on finding solutions, the sheer number of people that have stepped up to the plate to do whatever they can to assist is truly humbling.
Artel counts itself fortunate to be able to assist these efforts by helping our laboratory customers ensure their assays and liquid handling processes are performing optimally. From Regeneron and Johnson & Johnson’s efforts in developing coronavirus vaccines, to ARUP and BioFire’s work in providing accurate and fast diagnostic tests we are honored to be a part of this great effort. So, we would like to say thank you to the multitudes of COVID-19 heroes across the world.
Here in Maine, the Artel team is also doing its best to support our health-care providers and our small businesses: Front line medical professionals are putting themselves at risk, and local restaurants are struggling to stay financially afloat. So, while night shift ER health-care staff at Maine Medical Center were focused on helping patients dealing with COVID and other incoming critical illnesses, we have partnered with local restaurants to deliver to them much-appreciated midnight meals. We are proud to stand with all our partners – and to show our appreciation and to support their efforts during this challenging crisis.
