Good To Go Test exclusively uses McMaster Molecular Medium™, which in simple terms is the liquid or fluid inside the transport tube that is analyzed in the lab for the potential detection of Covid-19. It is temperature stable and can maintain coronavirus samples for up to 14 days, significantly longer than other media. McMaster Molecular Media (or MMM as it is referred to) inactivates – kills – the virus while preserving the viability of the bacteria during transport. As a result, it is safer for the technicians testing the sample as they are not dealing with live viruses.
Bay Area Health Trust, a Hamilton, Ontario based company has entered into an exclusive licensing agreement for the McMaster Molecular Medium (‘MMM’) with McMaster University. MMM was developed by researchers from McMaster University and St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton’s Disease Diagnostics and Development Group and will enable labs to safely increase their COVID testing capacity and therefore returning results faster.
Good To Go Test is operated by Bay Area Health Trust.
