Thursday, 23. July 2020 10:40

Demand for Roche's products has jumped amid the coronavirus pandemic and new orders are at levels normally recorded over a period of four or five years, Roche Diagnostics CEO Dr. Thomas Schinecker said while speaking to the press on Thursday.

Schinecker noted that some governments are sending military planes to pick up instruments from Roche as demand soared amid the pandemic.

Commenting on high demand, the executive especially pointed out that equipment sales are on the rise. However, he also added that Roche expects to add new COVID-19 antibody tests to its products by the end of the year.
