Effective concentration: a future-proof approach to characterizing pathogen concentrations in wastewater

Calendar
Feb 2022

In this white paper, you’ll gain insights into Biobot’s approach to wastewater-based epidemiology (WBE) for the analysis of SARS-CoV-2 and how it can apply to the monitoring of other respiratory diseases.

In the white paper, you’ll learn:

  • Why WBE is an important tool for monitoring COVID-19 as well as other respiratory infections.
  • How the raw concentration of SARS-CoV-2 as measured in wastewater is affected by technical factors unrelated to the spread of the virus.
  • How Biobot uses normalization to adjust for dilution and population size and is introducing the concept of effective concentration as a transparent and future-proof approach for this gradual increase in the factors accounted for.
