COVID-19 Diagnostic Lab Prepared for Challenges of 2021

DynaLIFE meeting high demand for public and industry testing & research

“Last year was hard, but we have reasons to be hopeful and optimistic in 2021. It won’t be easy, but we will come back from this,” said DynaLIFE CEO Jason Pincock.” In 2020 DynaLIFE laid the groundwork to help Alberta’s health science and research systems meet the challenges the new year will throw at us.”

DynaLIFE conducts diagnostic testing for central and northern Alberta – more than 20 million tests per year requisitioned by physicians. Since the onset of the pandemic, DynaLIFE has developed innovative ways to increase Alberta’s capacity for COVID-19 testing, while continuing to provide all of the regular diagnostic lab services people and workplaces rely on. This has included expansion into Calgary to support Southern Alberta.

“The technologies and processes we have now are so much more advanced than even just a year ago,” Pincock said. “Albertans can be inspired by the pace at which we’ve identified challenges and solved them,” Pincock said.

“We are entering 2021 with state-of-the-art laboratory testing facilities, and more testing capacity. We are preparing to expand to accelerate our research and testing capacity even further,” Pincock added. “DynaLIFE is prepared for 2021, and we’re making sure Alberta is too,” he added.
