FREMONT, CA: ELITechGroup Molecular Diagnostics (ELITechGroup), is a leading provider of diagnostic testing products. In recent times, the company has distributed more than 3.5 million SARS-CoV-2 tests all over the world. It has also implemented more than 500 of its top diagnostics instruments, which consist of the ELITe InGenius polymerase chain reaction (PCR) system, worldwide, with over a hundred placed since the beginning of the pandemic. The system permits laboratories to consistently detect SARS-CoV-2 in only a few hours and conduct similar testing for other diseases, like flu, to make sure they make an accurate diagnosis.
Since 2016, the ELITe InGenius has been extensively utilized in hospitals and other healthcare facilities. Due to its dependability and flexibility, ELITechGroup has become one of the first organizations to have SARS-CoV-2 tests with a sample-to-result system.

There are various advantages to this centralized high-throughput testing methods. One of them is that they do not have to wait for a large batch of samples to gather before testing. There are also no delays from dispatching the samples off-premises to the central laboratory.
