This is the team of superheroes

This is the team that processed 471,418 samples for SARS-CoV-2 since August 2020.

This is the team that learned how to operate and maintain more than 50 unique pieces of equipment and software, each with its own special requirements and quirks.

This is the team that prepares thousands of sample collection tubes every week.

This is the team that mastered laboratory robotics overnight.

This is the team that successfully integrated into Duke Health’s clinical laboratory system while balancing enormous workloads.

This is the team that steps up day after day and night after night to keep our campus and the wider Durham community safe from SARS-CoV-2.

This is the team that endlessly problem-solves, rolls with the punches, celebrates victories, and never gives up.

This is the team we thank, we celebrate, and for whom we are forever grateful.

This is the team of superheroes.


Thank you to the Duke SARS-CoV-2 Surveillance Team. Duke's superheroes!
