COVID-19 in Wastewater
In response to the COVID-19 global pandemic, Bureau Veritas now offers testing in support of Wastewater-Based Epidemiology services for monitoring and quantifying the SARS-CoV-2 virus in wastewater samples.
Wastewater can provide a quick and accurate snapshot of the prevalence of COVID-19 in the community at large, by monitoring changes in daily concentrations. The reverse transcriptase quantitative polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR) method is a potentially predictive tool that can help direct proactive and targeted public health actions. Bureau Veritas’ team of scientists leverages extensive experience in the fields of wastewater testing and molecular science techniques. We provide tailored support by addressing the applicability of the method to your objectives and help you understand the implications of the data.
