The NT department of Health required a Rapid Antigen Test that is easy to use yet provides a superior sensitivity.
With demand being at a peak at the time and far outweighing supply, combined with huge import and customs delays, this provided a huge challenge by itself to the NT government.
Longstanding partners of NT Health for clinical products, Westlab utilised their exclusivity with MP Biomedicals globally to secure production allocations for NT Health.
Working with our supply chain partners meant we were able to take greater control of the supply chain and be set for success in the delivery phase with uninterrupted import access.
Working with our supply chain network, several chartered flights into Darwin took place to coordinate airfreight and ensure a staged, timely delivery. Further to this, the MP Biomedicals Rapid Antigen Test Kit with its 98%+ sensitivity rating remains the best product on the market and proves successful in NT where testing our vulnerable communities is important.
