Surveillance analysis of potentially pathogenic microbes found in shared public resources is an important component of research aimed at understanding, preparing for, and protecting communities from potential widespread infection and transmission of infectious diseases. For example, wastewater testing for SARS-CoV-2 has emerged as an efficient, cost-effective, and reliable method for assessing and estimating population infection levels. This approach may provide data to develop predictive modeling tools, enabling hospital and ICU occupancy trend analysis in the future. 

The fastest and most affordable method to date for quantitative viral detection is the quantitative reverse transcriptase PCR (qRT-PCR) assay.


Watch this webinar to learn about:

  • Technique, reagents and instrumentation used in wastewater testing
  • How wastewater testing applies to SARS-CoV-2
  • Implications for analysis of other pathogens and infectious diseases
