Detecting and quantifying SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, in wastewater and pooled saliva surveillance samples have become an essential tool in the fight against the spread of COVID-19. As a leader in environmental molecular genetic testing for almost two decades, SiREM is proud to offer Gene-Trac® SARS-CoV-2 virus testing using leading edge reverse transcriptase quantitative polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR) tests.
Solution-focused Gene-Trac® SARS-CoV-2 tests helps your organization regain and sustain business continuity. Our suite of SARS-CoV-2 tests covers community-wide wastewater monitoring, small pooled samples of work teams, departments, residents, and other related groups of people and hard surface sampling to support facility health and disinfection efficacy.
Gene-Trac® SARS-CoV-2 clients include municipalities, educational institutions and private businesses who integrate this technology into their safety and pandemic response management.
We offer specialized Gene-Trac® SARS-CoV-2 Test procedures for:
Municipal or facility sanitary wastewater – To determine population or facility level prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 to provide advance alert of local outbreaks and time critical data to manage control measures such as mask mandates and business restrictions.
Pooled saliva surveillance – To identify SARS-CoV-2 in groups too small for effective wastewater monitoring, a presumptive negative test result indicates that no group member is shedding the virus, whereas a positive result indicate clinical tests are required to identify individual carriers.
High-touch surfaces – To determine the presence/absence of SARS-CoV-2 and to verify surface disinfection protocols-our unique sampling approach allows up to 80 sampling locations per test to reduce overall costs.
All Gene-Trac® SARS-CoV-2 Tests Include:
- Sampling kits provided and delivered promptly to your location
- Comprehensive quality assurance, including positive, internal and negative controls to prevent false positives and negatives and increase data quality and interpretability
- USA and Canada based testing and sample reception options
- Responsive turn-around times from 1-3 days, depending on sample type, providing the information you need in a timely fashion
By participating in US and Canadian Interlaboratory Studies SiREM is proud to play our part in the implementation of effective laboratory methods for in the battle against COVID-19. Get the peace of mind that comes from the ability to effectively monitor SARS-CoV-2 in your community, business or institute.
