Design Basis Calculator

Use the Design Basis Calculator to determine the number of stations required and materials for the duration of the 10 week pilot.

  1. Fill out information based on the screen your organization will use for the pilot
    1. Screen name and manufacturer - select from pull down menu
    2. Population quantity - Number of people enrolled in the pilot
    3. # of days per week - number of days per week that the testing centre will be open (minimum 2 days based on assumption that people will be tested 2 times per week)
    4. Screening Station availability - number of hours per day that the screening station will be open (minimum 3 hours, maximum 7 hours)
  2. Assumptions
    1. Each pilot participant will be screened twice per week for duration of the pilot
    2. Pilot will last for 10 weeks.
  3. Remaining data will automatically populate based on the filled in information and assumptions.

Additional Considerations

The following items should also be taken into consideration when setting up your screening station.

  • Cabinets or shelf racks for storage for screens
    • Items needed for the administration of the screens and PPE could be within the Screening Centre in lockable cabinets or in a separate lockable room with shelves or a combination of both.
