The diagnostic tests allow clinicians to get answers quickly, which supports their ability to make important life-or-death decisions when triaging or treating patients, assists in managing employee testing to ensure the health and safety of those on the frontlines, and saves valuable PPE. The technology also enables the development of vaccines and therapeutics, and supports all aspects of cellular research, including the study of mechanisms that underlie COVID-19.Visit
Mod Tech Labs
MOD is smarter processing for visual effects. The production tools enable studios to bring beautiful, immersive content to life faster and more affordably than ever before. Visual effects (VFX) in movies costs between 10-25% of a movie budget, averaging $40M for a typical blockbuster. Studios typically use their own infrastructure to run software limiting work capacity to existing machines, and this solution allows studios to maximize the productivity of their staff and take on more projects within the same window. This leads to enhanced revenues and more market share for each studio on the MOD platform.Visit
