The purchase order itself is for 50,000 1drop Inc test kits, with little or no upfront costs being attributed to Datametrex as always. Under the terms of the order, 50,000 detection kits along with an equal amount of sterile swabs, skirted tubes and universal transport mediums. Two PCR machines to analyze the swabs are also being purchased in addition to the test kits, along with the necessary RNA extraction kits.

Material is expected to be shipped directly from the manufacturer to the mining operations in Peru and Surinam. Notably, demand is likely expected to continue for operators in this region of the world, given that Peru has highest deaths per million people globally as a result of COVID-19, with 908.8 deaths per million people. Operators that desire to keep mining will as a result be required to test employees frequently for the virus to prevent lockdowns from occurring.

“Datametrex is glad to be able to help companies in Peru deal with this urgent situation. Assisting with the implementation of test kits is a fundamental response to the pandemic, and those mining companies that have been able to test more comprehensively have had greater success dealing with the pandemic.”
