The whole product development life cycles, as well as the IQ/OQ/PQ portion of validation with the required submissions to the FDA for new devices can not be compressed down to two weeks. Two months is a possibility, but you're also failing to account for the fact that cross company/ industry wide standards would have to be developed and approved prior to the creation of the new kits. That's a process that takes years in most industries.

Diebold wants to force the state to stop using the machines immediately, despite the upcoming municipal elections in many towns. The commonwealth chose the competitor, based on an open process that included disable groups. Diebold executives appeared confused when encountering election officials who made an intelligent choice."
