TAMPA, Fla., March 30, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- TVM.Bio® announced it would begin helping schools become CLIA certified (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments), a legal requirement before schools and colleges can begin the COVID-19 testing needed to open their doors to students. As part of the testing efforts, TVM.Bio® also created a rapid-reporting COVID Submission System™ to offer schools a way to coordinate, streamline, and organize various testing results that must be reported at a local, state, and federal level. Additionally, TVM.Bio® offers a variety of deeply discounted, wholesale testing supplies and PPE equipment essential for the reopening process.
"We've all had to pivot and make adjustments during the pandemic," said Roger Singh, President of TVM.Bio®. "And we understand just how frustrating that can be. CLIA certification can be confusing but it's absolutely necessary. So we're here to help schools and colleges get that certification, so they can begin on-site testing of their students and staff. We want to assist schools so they can get back to focusing on what they do best: educating their students. We also hope to help younger generations get back into a normal routine and rhythm again, after suffering through so much chaos last year."
