Pace Analytical® offers testing of wastewater by Real Time, quantitative Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-qPCR) for SARS-COV2, the virus responsible for COVID-19. Current studies indicate that remnants of SARS-COV2 virus are present in wastewater, suggesting wastewater as a marker to:

• Measure the prevalence of COVID-19 in communities
• Anticipate outbreaks
• Warn of future outbreaks

The qPCR test detects RNA, the genetic signature of SARS-COV2, in wastewater. This is done by quantifying viral RNA using Real Time (RT) reverse transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction (qPCR). The cycle threshold (CT) values obtained will be used to quantify the copies of RNA of two variants of SARS-COV2 (SARS-COV2 N1 and SARS-COV2 N2) in wastewater samples. The results are reported as copies of viral RNA/mL.
