Application eBook: Efficient sampling procedures for SARS-CoV-2 in air and wastewater
2 December 2021

The novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) outbreak has created an urgent need to develop and optimize methods to sample the virus both in aerosols, its primary transmission route, as well as in wastewater, a surveillance method to track and manage infections. As such, reliable air and water monitoring protocols are crucial in accurately detecting COVID-19 and managing the dynamics of the pandemic.

In this free eBook, we provide a compendium of methods to collect viruses from air and water samples, concentrate viral proteins, and optimize sample preparation for PCR-based COVID-19 detection. Download now to explore content including:

  • Sampling airborne viruses
  • Gelatin membranes for air sampling
  • Coronavirus detection from aerosols
  • Ultrafiltration of water samples
