The lab, located at the Multidisciplinary Research Building, or MRB, tested its first sample in August and opened in early September.  The result of months of collaboration between several campus groups, the lab allows UCR to conduct its own independent testing of the campus community at a rate of about 600 samples a day. Results are processed within 24 hours.
