Kalorama Information, the most trusted name in healthcare and clinical diagnostics market research, has put a large database of diagnostic instruments in the U.S. online free of charge to start-ups, commercial entities developing COVID-19 solutions, and hospitals laboratories so they can locate sites that do testing in the US market. The entire Clinical Masterfile details the manufacturer and model of 39,628 clinical diagnostic instruments at 5,331 U.S. hospitals. Last month we made the COVID-19 instrument part of our Kalorama Clinical Masterfile available for commercial suppliers and local hospitals and labs. These data will allow national and local hospitals and suppliers to find each other and get the necessary COVID-19 kits, reagents, and controls distributed through national supply chains or local swaps.

Now we have updated that list — The list has 2216 instruments from 1,214 institutions that have FDA EUA authorized instruments for COVID-19 Testing as of 4/15 and another 382 instruments at 165 institutions that could perform authorized assays. Laboratory professions will be able to use the database to find each other and share reagents and kits needed to maintain their labs’ testing volume.
