Gravity Diagnostics Surpasses One Million Covid-19 Samples Processed
COVINGTON, Ky, Nov. 17, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Gravity Diagnostics is a diagnostic laboratory licensed in all 50 states that responded to the call to test for COVID-19 in early March of 2020, and what an incredible journey it has been so far. Gravity Diagnostics opened their laboratory in 2016, and now, in 2020, when they ultimately decided to test for COVID-19, they had no idea what direction it would take them. The company has gone from testing 20 COVID-19 samples per day to over 20,000. Gravity has now processed over one million COVID-19 samples.
Our decision to go all-in could have put our company out of business as we intentionally shifted our focus on COVID-19.
Gravity has always been focused on Toxicology, Pharmacogenomics, and Infectious Diseases. They were uniquely positioned to rise to the occasion to test for COVID-19 from their expertise in Upper Respiratory testing. This was not without a large investment in equipment, space, and personnel, all risks they were willing to take to be a part of the solution. They went from 35 employees to nearly 400 employees and expanded 4,000 square feet of workspace and laboratory space to approximately 50,000. Gravity continues to be recognized nationally for its company culture and its impact on its community and nation.
"When COVID-19 hit our country, we knew we had to do all we could to help healthcare providers get the results they needed as fast as possible to make critical decisions for their patients. The 10 to 12 to even 14 days they were waiting on results was crushing the system and negatively impacting the lives of thousands of people. Our decision to go all-in could have put our company out of business as we intentionally shifted our focus from what was our core business to focus on COVID-19 testing so we could maximize our capacity for COVID-19 testing with rapid results. Eight months later, I am still truly blown away each day at what people can do when they come together and put others before themselves, which is what this team does every day." - Julie Brazil, Co-Founder and COO of Gravity Diagnostics.
A dedicated workforce is the secret sauce
The long hours, devotion, and timeliness that their employees epitomize every day make this booming business possible. There are shifts now 7 days a week from as early as 4:30am to as late as 11pm. While collecting upwards of 20,000 samples per day, they continue to maintain a 24-48-hour turnaround time with accurate results and provide dedicated customer service to every account and partner.
The Gravity team continues to surpass expectations. As for the future, Gravity Diagnostics looks forward to continuing to be part of the solution during the pandemic and expand their testing capabilities in any way that is most needed for COVID-19 and beyond.
