We analyze sewage to map population health
in cities.

EVERYBODY PEES AND POOPS, EVERY DAY.

We analyze viruses, bacteria, and chemical metabolites that are excreted in urine and stool and collected in sewers. This information is a readout of our health and wellbeing as a community. We map this data, empowering communities to tackle public health proactively.
