Track the outbreak.

We need to better track the outbreak

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.

How it works

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.
