Two northwest Ohio companies are helping make vital components for COVID-19 tests.

Formlabs Ohio, a manufacturing business in Millbury, is producing non-sterile nasal swabs for COVI-19 testing kits. They have also teamed up with Concordance Healthcare Solutions, located in Tiffin, to package the swabs.

Concordance uses a pouch that fits 25 swabs and could be placed in an autoclave at the hospital for sterilization.

Formlabs Ohio will produce 100,000 swabs.
