About Us

Novir is committed to providing solutions to infectious diseases with reliable simple, rapid and cost-efficient products addressing significant healthcare and community challenges. Our focus on quality and clinical relevance stems from a group with combined global experience in healthcare of 80+ years solving healthcare problems every day. The company provides a programmatic approach to solving for infectious disease problems, by partnering with high-quality organizations delivering complete solutions working closely with its customers in government, healthcare, and employers.

Novir came about in a response to the Corona epidemic and its effects on communities and people struggling to find basic reliable inexpensive solutions to testing, and for that reason assembled its network and expertise to support the crisis at hand and struck valuable initial partnerships with other groups such as Noviral in Sweden and Assurance laboratories in Wisconsin. Novir is equipped to address immediate issues with testing capacities and has the vision to become the preferred local choice in providing testing solutions with quality and reliability.
