No Covid – Under the name “Novid20” from March 2020 to June 2022, we worked as a team of up to 20 talented people with all our strength to end the COVID pandemic with innovative software solutions and processes. We focused primarily on preventing pandemic-related closures of schools and kindergartens via mass covid test screening. During the two years of Covid we were able to build up so much digital know-how that it would have been foolish to go back to our old jobs and so we decided to pivot into the “first” Viennese digital product studio. The full rebranding from Novid20 to TWOxTEN was in March 2023.
Novid20 provided painless, uncomplicated PCR testing to over 3300 schools in Bavaria, 2x a week. For 30 seconds, the children suck on a cotton swab, which is combined with those of the other children in a common tube while still in class and later analyzed in one of 9 laboratories. Uncomplicated, safe and cost-efficient.
We have set ourselves the goal of also making PCR tests available on a large scale and at low cost. Therefore, together with the high-throughput laboratory Novogenia, the laboratory IT specialists from KCC and the healthcare infrastructure professionals from WEMS, we have built a COVID test infrastructure that can process up to 1.2 million PCR tests per day.
