Detect, Track, and Trace the Spread of COVID-19 in Large Populations
Epidemiologists need a cost-effective method to detect, track, and trace the spread of COVID-19 in Large Populations. Monitoring wastewater provides an early warning system for outbreaks and a community-wide surveillance method.
Droplet Digital PCR is already recommended in the CDC guidelines for wastewater testing and has been published by the EPA as a dependable method for quantifying viruses in wastewater. Bio-Rad is the market leader in digital PCR systems with thousands of instruments already in the market across academic institutions, commercial and biopharma labs, and diagnostic labs. Droplet Digital PCR is particularly well suited for wastewater detection because of its sensitivity and accuracy, even in samples that otherwise inhibit other molecular detection methods.
