Cornell University creates its own COVID-19 Testing Laboratory on campus

The new Cornell COVID-19 Testing Laboratory (CCTL) housed in the College of Veterinary Medicine is helping to keep the community safe by processing 5,000 to 7,000 tests every 24 hours for Cornell students, staff and faculty. It’s a massive undertaking in a state-of-the-art lab built from scratch in less than two months, based on data-driven models, research and interdisciplinary expertise across Cornell’s campuses; and with support and guidance from Cayuga Health System’s medical and laboratory leadership.
