DeviceTalks Weekly: Medtech goes to war with COVID-19

March 20, 2020

In this week’s DeviceTalks Weekly Podcast, we’ll talk about medtech’s essential role in the escalating war against COVID-19.

We’ll visit with Fluidda CEO Jan De Backer and Kevin Thornal, division president of diagnostic solutions at Hologic. The executives will explain how their imaging and diagnostic devices – which both received recent FDA approval –  will aid against the diagnosis and treatment of COVID-19. 

We’ll also discuss how these two medtech executives view the Trump Administration’s invoking of the Defense Production Act, a Korean-war era law that could have unseen impacts on medtech companies and their supply chain.

DeviceTalks Weekly is hosted by Tom Salemi, editorial director, DeviceTalks, and Chris Newmarker, executive editor, life sciences.
