COVID-19 Wastewater Testing

Faster, cheaper, easier

The challenge with previous methods for testing wastewater for COVID-19 is that the collection, extraction and concentration steps are expensive, complicated and time-consuming.  This is why, to date, this type of testing has been mostly done on universities and using mail-in services.

LuminUltra’s patent-pending innovation has simplified the process, resulting in a test that gets you results in hours rather than days or week, and does not require specialized equipment or lab expertise unlike other testing methods.

Gold-standard testing technology

Wastewater testing for COVID-19 is done via qPCR – the same technology used for clinical testing.

The LuminUltra GeneCount® qPCR device is rapid, portable, can be used on-site without a lab, and produces results in under 90 minutes.

Additional COVID-19 testing methods are also available for the GeneCount® device, including surface, air, and clinical diagnostics.
