Our solutions for fighting against the COVID-19 pandemic
FIND OUT ABOUT ALL OF OUR SERVICES :
As we continue to learn more about the COVID-19 pandemic and how the disease spread, it has now been recognized and acknowledged by CDC1 and WHO2 that aerosol transmission in poorly ventilated indoor environments may play a significant role. Aerosols are respiratory droplets (5 µm). If aerosols contain the virus in sufficient quantity a susceptible person could inhale them and become infected. While the infectious dose of SARS-CoV-2 is currently unknown data is available for other respiratory viruses.
DETECTION OF COVID-19 IN WORN MASKS
Masks are recommended by government organizations as a simple barrier to help reduce the spray of droplets when coughing, sneezing or talking. Wearing masks is particularly important when social distancing is not feasible. For that reason, many workplaces and public buildings now require masks to reduce the spread of disease in our fight against COVID-19. Testing worn masks presents a unique opportunity to collect information about the presence of SARS-CoV-2 in a population.
FIGHTING AGAINST COVID-19 THROUGH WASTEWATER TESTING
📢 Eurofins is now offering a new service to 𝐝𝐞𝐭𝐞𝐜𝐭 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐩𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞 𝐨𝐟 𝐒𝐀𝐑𝐒-𝐂𝐨𝐕-𝟐 𝐢𝐧 𝐰𝐚𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐰𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐫. This analysis detects the presence of COVID-19 in a given population, with a sensitivity proven to detect one infected person in a community of over 1000.
Studies have established that wastewater can be used as a lead indicator of SARS-CoV-2 infection in a population. Regular and ongoing monitoring of wastewater effluent can provide an early indication of an outbreak, possibly even while the population in question is asymptomatic but potentially contagious.
