Are You Sure Your Testing for SARS-CoV-2 in Wastewater is Accurate and Reliable?
As we move into the post-pandemic era, it is essential that laboratories monitoring SARS-CoV-2 levels in wastewater ensure their methods and results are reliable and accurate.
LGC AXIO Proficiency Testing now offers a new proficiency testing (PT) sample for the detection and quantification of SARS-CoV-2 in Wastewater by nucleic acid amplification testing. The sample is part of our Water Microbiology (QWAS) PT scheme. Participants will be sent non-infectious samples provided in a synthetic wastewater matrix. These samples are compatible with molecular assays that target CDC and WHO consensus gene sequence regions ORF1a, RdRp, E (Envelope), N (Nucleocapsid) and/or S (Spike).
