This has been the case with the development and quick manufacturing scaleup of Qorvo's COVID-19 test. Primary among these challenges has been acquiring and coordinating broad multidisciplinary expertise among Qorvo’s team of people and partners; successfully cultivating the capabilities and culture to be flexible and innovative in face of extreme uncertainty; and, lastly, developing access to broad manufacturing scalability to accommodate the flexibility needed from product development to high-volume manufacturing.
This webinar will present a case study outlining Qorvo's path in developing and commercializing its COVID-19 test. In so doing, participants can expect to learn:
- Key challenges of diagnostic test development, both anticipated and unanticipated
- Relevant factors during development that are important to eventual successful commercialization
- Perspective on the need for development and manufacturing partners and what capabilities they should possess.
