Northern Star Resources Ltd.
Lab Without Walls has received significant financial backing by Western Australian gold mining company Northern Star Resources. Its patronage has been the lifeblood of projects that are delivering life-altering health outcomes.
CEO of Northern Star, Stuart Tonkin wrote:
“As Northern Star enacted measures to protect its staff and immediate communities from the potential health risks, it became more apparent that you can’t manage what you don’t measure. Testing for COVID-19 was key to understanding early detection and intervention to “reduce the spread” or “flatten the curve” of Corona Virus while Health Care Facilities prepared capacity for caseloads.
To assist the fast tracking of a mobile testing facility, Northern Star partnered with Labs Without Walls to leverage their knowledge to enable a leading-edge rapid and remotely deployable COVID-19 screening system, that could be used to manage virus outbreaks in regional or remote communities. We are proud to provide this support that will see Health Care transported to where its most needed under a variety of circumstances and importantly have the preparedness to act quickly in a time of need.”
