20/30 Labs are delighted to announce our new approach to infection control through the analysis of wastewater in near source settings.
Wastewater-based epidemiology (WBE) is a relatively new approach utilised to give comprehensive health information on communities. WBE has been used to help monitor the circulation of poliovirus for decades and more recently as an early indicator for the presence of SARS-CoV-2 in communities. While SARS-CoV-2 is primarily thought of as a respiratory virus, it also affects the digestive system. SARS-CoV-2 can be shed in the stool of individuals up to 3 to 5 days before the onset of classic symptoms as well as in asymptomatic individuals. Wastewater monitoring detects signals from the infected population, regardless of symptomatic status. WBE in England currently covers around 70% of the population, supporting the national response to COVID-19.
