2020 and 2021 proved to be a challenging year for suppliers of diagnostic COVID-19 testing solutions. The demand for accurate and efficient testing was overwhelming. Diagnostics players sought to rapidly expand manufacturing capacity, presenting opportunities for manufacturing organizations (CMOs) to assist in scaling production. According to Medical Product Outsourcing magazine, nearly half of laboratories indicated that supply sourcing was their biggest challenge.
