 SAN DIEGO, CA – SEPTEMBER 16, 2021Dalrada Corporation (OTCQB: DFCO, “Dalrada”) is excited to share information on the Company’s community outreach efforts that support free, on-site COVID-19 point-of-care tests at in-person events. Pala Diagnostics, LLC (“Pala Diagnostics”), a joint venture between Dalrada Health and Vivera Pharmaceuticals, Inc., is a fully operational national laboratory that processes point-of-care, EUA approved, rapid antigen testing, and lab-based PCR testing for COVID-19.
