Patient testing is limited, we need more ways to track COVID-19.
We are a team of biologists, epidemiologists, data scientists, urban planners, and engineers.
SARS-CoV-2 is shed in the stool of Covid-19 patients, making its way into our sewers. We analyze sewage to determine the presence of infected individuals and estimate the number of cases.
Data from sewage supports communities with:
Trend analysis. Determine when to safely re-open, and keep open, our communities and businesses through frequent sampling.
Early warning. Detect the re-emergence of Covid-19 in a population to rapidly take action and contain new outbreaks.
Testing at scale. For a fraction of the cost of mass individual testing, get an overview of the scope of the outbreak.
Program design: We develop the appropriate sampling program for your needs.
Sample collection: We provide sampling protocols, mail-in kits, and hardware.
Lab analysis: We isolate the unique genetic signature of SARS-CoV-2 and analyze the amount of the virus present.
Data analysis: Leveraging thousands of samples, we estimate the prevalence of Covid-19 in your population.
Data interpretation: Through data visualizations and weekly webinars, we provide expert customer support.
Identify the locations where you will be collecting your wastewater samples. You should have access to a 24-hour composite sampling device.
