"Ortho Clinical Diagnostics continues to innovate at a pace rarely seen in their industry. Their success is a reflection of the company culture and commitment to exceptional patient care by delivering accurate test results," stated Frank Bonafilia, Executive Director, Edison Awards.
Throughout the pandemic Ortho has worked to innovate and develop quality, standardized diagnostic tools to help clinicians and researchers to better understand immunity and create long-term impact by helping communities protect their most vulnerable members. Ortho was one of the first companies to develop a COVID-19 antibody test in 2020 to detect immune response to the disease, which in turn helped diagnose and treat patients long before many other diagnostic tests were available. This new quantitative antibody test reinforces Ortho’s commitment during the COVID-19 pandemic to adapt and recognize new clinical and public health needs. Together, these tools provide highly accurate and reliable detection of SARS-CoV-2 antibodies to understand the long-term impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic while showcasing Ortho’s ability to adapt and recognize global demands in a changing environment.
