Purdue testing lab able to detect UK variant of COVID-19 virus

February 23, 2021

Innovators at Purdue’s Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratory (ADDL) have used their expertise to make the on-campus testing facility one of the only labs in Indiana actively looking for and able to detect the UK variant of the COVID-19 virus. This ability, combined with the university’s data-driven testing approach, has enabled cases to be caught, thereby stopping any potential spread among the campus community.
