Monitoring levels of SARS-CoV-2 in wastewater allows for the earliest detection of COVID-19 cases and additionally enables the tracking of emerging variants of concern. For a safe and reliable workflow, the first step of collection and storage of the sample material is crucial particularly for such highly diluted material like wastewater.
Zymo Research provides the most effective and safe sample collection kit by inactivating pathogens and eliminating PCR inhibitors in one spin.
The possibility to enrich the total RNA from large volumes of water, wastewater, sludge and sewage is enabled by the water concentrating buffer in the Zymo Environ Water RNA kit. While inactivating SARS-CoV-2, this buffer securely preserves the integrity of viral RNA at ambient temperature.
Zymo Research also offers a Wastewater Covid 19 Testing Service which allows the tracking of incident numbers on average 7 days before the symptomatic cases appear.
