3D printed nasopharyngeal swabs.

A consortium spanning academia, medical, and commercial enterprises to deliver clinically tested, FDA registered, 3D printed COVID-19 nasopharyngeal test swab designs at scale.


In an effort to relieve the bottleneck for coronavirus testing, this consortium of experts and thought leaders has developed and manufactured fully 3D printed, FDA registered test swabs with superior or equivalent efficacy to flocked swabs.

Validated manufacturers around the country are now poised to rapidly produce up to 4 million 3D printed swabs per week, starting today. Hospital incident commanders can connect with members of this consortium directly and contact their state Emergency Management Agencies to request immediate supplies for their growing needs.
