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:
Determine when to safely re-open, and keep open, our communities and businesses through frequent sampling.
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
We develop the appropriate sampling program for your needs.
We provide sampling protocols, mail-in kits, and hardware.
We isolate the unique genetic signature of SARS-CoV-2 and analyze the amount of the virus present.
Leveraging thousands of samples, we estimate the prevalence of Covid-19 in your population.
Through data visualizations and weekly webinars, we provide expert customer support.
