America Makes’ Ambassador Program’s 2020 class represents a cross-section of the industry whose work helped further advance additive technology and showed the resilience of the AM community. “The additive manufacturing industry has been challenged like never before this year. This year’s class represents individuals who have continued to be at the forefront of pushing additive manufacturing to new heights,” says America Makes Executive Director John Wilczynski. “Their important work is setting the trajectory for the industry’s future and we are honored to have them as part of the America Makes program.” Launched in 2017, the Ambassadors program recognizes individuals who have continually demonstrated outstanding dedication to advancing America Makes and its mission. 

Qosina partners with Resolution Medical

Sterile 3D-printed nasopharyngeal COVID-19 testing swabs for nasal mucosa specimen collection are available from Qosina. Developed by Resolution Medical, 3D-printed sterile swabs are produced quickly by using Carbon’s digital light synthesis (Carbon DLS) 3D printing process. The swab is 5.9" long and the swab head features a soft, lattice-style cage around a flexible helical core, allowing it to easily conform to the organic pathway of the nasal cavity. The lattice-structured dome tip combines comfort and durability for optimal patient experience and captures sufficient specimen for testing. This sterile swab comes individually packaged and has a shelf life of six months.
