A lack of testing has been one of the biggest challenges to combating the COVID-19 pandemic. Testing facilities often have a shortage of personnel to analyze samples and provide results. Throughout 2020, Americans were turned away from testing centers. Rapid testing is becoming vital to mitigating the spread of the novel coronavirus.

Austin, Texas-based Wilder Systems and the Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing (ARM) Institute are hoping collaborative robots can play a role in solving this shortage. They built a robotics system to automate rapid COVID-19 testing, which could enable more people to be tested and receive their results sooner.
