Mills announces testing breakthrough amid crisis

by Ruth Leubecker

“I thank IDEXX for their generosity and partnership with us,” announced Gov. Janet Mills in her Thursday midday briefing to Mainers. “This will allow the state to administer more universal testing.”

“We now have more than triple the capacity we have had,” said Dr. Nirav Shah, Maine CDC director who shares the spotlight, six feet apart, with Mills.

The Westbrook-based IDEXX has produced the diagnostic test that can provide results in under three hours, according to a recent news release.
