Notably, BioDot was instrumental in the global COVID-19 supply chain, enabling approximately one billion tests within the first 12 months of the outbreak. In conjunction with the implementation of Artemis’ value creation plan, BioDot’s leadership and employee base adapted seamlessly to supply chain bottlenecks, 24-hour productions schedules, and coronavirus restrictions to meet a seemingly unending demand.

With BioDot’s impressive capabilities, improved operational efficiency, and increased scale on display, it was clear that the natural progression of BioDot meant finding a more permanent home for the business. On June 17, 2021 Artemis Announced its Sale of BioDot to ATS Automation Tooling Systems Inc (TSX:ATA).

I know I speak for the whole team when I say that Artemis' partnership with BioDot was a truly humbling experience. From the moment the Coronavirus Pandemic took hold in 2020, BioDot's team stepped up to the plate: a constant reminder that, as we try to enable global trends towards greater health and longevity, what we do is only made possible through the perseverance and agility of our incredible portfolio company employees."
