Monitoring water quality in a pandemic

Monitoring water quality in a pandemic

July 20, 2020

With the increased need for higher-priority testing, lab infrastructure around the globe is overwhelmed, particularly in Africa.

This unprecedented strain on lab resources is forcing everyday testing (such as E.coli testing in water) down the priority list, or making it unavailable altogether. Low laboratory staffing, due to mandatory social distancing restrictions, is making the situation worse.

Most labs are failing to adequately analyze water samples during this COVID-19 period, whether due to logistical issues, transportation, or insufficient staff levels. Learn how technology can help:

• Deliver fast, accurate results
• Eliminate logistical
• Transportation issues
• Allow for social distancing
• Frees up labs to perform higher-priority testing

It's been reported widely that COVID-19 can be detected in wastewater. This means testing sewage could potentially be a simple way to detect and track outbreaks, offering an earlier warning than clinical tests or hospitalizations. Wastewater surveillance could also detect outbreaks at vulnerable institutions without testing everyone there. Learn what the future of monitoring COVID-19 looks like?
