USF Health is printing up to 3,000 swabs per days

Posted on Updated on

The authority of the USF Health Advanced Visualization Center, collaborated with USF Health Radiology Department to design swabs for COVID-19 testing. The increased number of COVID-19 testing is rapidly outstripping the current supply, so USF Health is prepared to produce 3,000 clinical-grade swabs per day.
USF Health and Northwell Health, using Formlabs’ 3D printers and biocompatible, autoclavable resins, developed prototypes. The swabs were tested by clinicians at Northwell Health, USF Health and Tampa General Hospital for patient safety and comfort. Now that clinical validation is complete, 3D printers at USF Health and Northwell Health will produce the swabs and provide them to their patients.

As stated by Charles J. Lockwood, MD, MHCM, senior vice president for USF Health and dean of the USF Health Morsani College of Medicine, “This is a prime example of the incredible impact we can have on human lives when teams of experts across academia, health care delivery, and the tech industry come together. During this current COVID-19 outbreak, there is little time for delay, and the swift, agile and adept action of everyone on this effort will greatly improve this nation’s ability to test patients.”
