Biocept to Supply COVID-19 Testing Through Partnership With the Foundation for California Community Colleges
Foundation offers COVID-19 testing and support to more than 2.1 million students as part of campus health services
Through the Foundation’s CollegeBuys program, Biocept’s PCR-based COVID-19 test is now available for community colleges to purchase for students, faculty and staff. Access to and availability of testing will provide information needed to help protect the safety of campus populations and reduce the spread of the virus on campuses and in surrounding communities if/when colleges return from the current remote learning environment as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“As colleges prepare for in-person instruction, COVID-19 testing is going to be critically important in keeping campuses and students healthy and safe,” said
“Expanding access to COVID-19 testing supplies is essential to smart and safe reopening strategies for the California Community Colleges—safeguarding the health and wellness of our students, faculty and staff,” said
This partnership and the access to COVID-19 testing for the colleges are made possible through the Foundation’s CollegeBuys program, the systemwide procurement vehicle which leverages the purchasing power of the 116 colleges to offer a number of services and products at up to 85% discount, ensuring colleges can meet the educational needs of students.
