The Development of a Sensitive and Reliable qRT-PCR-Based SARS-CoV-2 Wastewater Analysis Protocol

Wastewater testing offers valuable insight on community-level data for various analytes, including pathogens that are associated with infectious diseases. Quantitative reverse transcriptase PCR (qRT-PCR) is well suited for wastewater analyses of pathogens due to its sensitivity, scalability and cost-effectiveness. It has been demonstrated that there is a correlation between SARS-CoV-2 RNA levels in wastewater and clinical cases, potentially providing predictive models for the community and healthcare institutions.
