Liberty16 and SalivaDirect

Easier and more accessible testing for SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19)

Ubiquitome has partnered with the Yale School of Public Health to enhance public access to COVID-19 testing, with United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) emergency use authorization (EUA) of the combination of SalivaDirect™ with Ubiquitome’s Liberty16 mobile real time-PCR.
