Track outbreaks.


We need to better track outbreaks

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 Covid-19 burden.

Data from sewage supports communities & buildings with:

Number one
Trend analysis

Determine when to safely re-open, and keep open, our communities and businesses through frequent sampling.

Number two
Early warning

Detect the re-emergence of Covid-19 in a population to rapidly take action and contain new outbreaks.

Number three
Testing at scale

For a fraction of the cost of mass individual testing, get an overview of the scope of the outbreak.
