Relay Medical Corp (RELA) has deployed its Fionet Platform at the 2021 National Bank Open tennis tournament in Toronto.

Leading the testing deployment is FRR’s previously announced partner, LifeLabs LP, Canada’s leading provider of laboratory diagnostic information and health connectivity solutions.

LifeLabs has deployed the Fionet system in advance of the tournament in preparation for testing athletes, officials, tournament employees and other attending personnel. Testing began on July 31 and will continue for the duration of the tournament.

“We are excited to build on our partnership with Fionet Rapid Response Group to support COVID-19 rapid testing at the National Bank Open presented by Rogers,” said Charles Brown, President and CEO of LifeLabs.

“We are excited to deploy this digital, quality-controlled, and high throughput solution to support the safe return of the tournament in Toronto,” added Brown.

FRR’s Fionet provides fast, scalable, quality-controlled testing and real-time digital results for electronic reporting in community-based or decentralized settings.

The Fionet platform has been integrated into LifeLabs’ laboratory information system as a turnkey, end-to-end COVID-19 rapid diagnostic testing program for testing and real-time tracking of COVID-19 at Aviva Centre in Toronto.

LifeLabs and FRR can deploy rapid testing into any setting while providing the calibre of automated, quality-controlled testing and tracking previously available only in centralized lab facilities.

“Our Fionet Platform has proven itself in the field as a trusted solution for COVID-19 rapid testing and real-timing tracking,” said Dr. Michael Greenberg, CEO, FRR. 

The 2021 National Bank Open will take place at Aviva Centre in Toronto, Ontario from August 7-15, 2021. Originally scheduled for August 8–16, 2020 as part of the 2020 tennis season, the 2020 edition of the Canadian Open was postponed to 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Fionet Platform is an end-to-end, rapid testing and tracking solution for community-based or decentralized settings. 

Relay Medical is a Toronto-based technology innovator focused on the development of novel solutions in the diagnostics and AI data science and IoT security sectors.

Relay Medical Corp (RELA) is down 2.13 per cent and is trading at C$0.23 at 11:49 am ET.
