The University of Ottawa Heart Institute Receives Funding for COVID-19 Research Using Spartan’s Test


Ottawa-Spartan Bioscience is excited to announce our collaboration with the University of Ottawa Heart Institute’s research into point-of-care testing for COVID-19 has received support from the Government of Ontario. Premier Doug Ford made the announcement along with the first phase of research projects dedicated to fighting COVID-19. These investments announced by Premier Ford will enable Ontario’s world-class research and innovation ecosystem to study how best to detect, prevent, and treat COVID-19.

Spartan is grateful for the Government of Ontario’s continued support for COVID-19 research and our unique technology. This important project, led by Dr. Derek So at the University of Ottawa Heart Institute, will evaluate the efficacy of point-of-care testing and determine when, how, and to whom it can be applied. This research will help us with our commitment to bring Spartan’s Made-in-Canada COVID-19 test to all Canadians.
