Environmental monitoring is the proactive approach to reassure your customers and clients that your business is making every effort to ensure their safety. We come to you and use qPCR swabs to detect the SARS-CoV-2 residue. This is done by swabbing hard surfaces like door handles, computer keyboards, chairs and benches, and other high-touch surfaces. We can rapidly swab and get results in our lab in under 2 hrs for urgent jobs.
We've written peer-reviewed papers on the subject of coronavirus contamination of surfaces and you can read about this here:

Breaking research published in Nature on 29th July 2020 demonstrates proof that environmental surface and air contamination is real. Swab surface samples from a windowsill were able to cause SARS-CoV-2 viral infection in cell culture. This is proof of the risks from fomite transmission.

Did you know that if a surface fails, this predicts with a 10-fold accuracy that there is one or more asymptomatic or presymptomatic persons in your workplace. Who are they - that's the problem, these people are invisible. But, surface testing for the coronavirus is being used for sentinel monitoring. This can help you by narrowing down the problem areas or 'hotspots'. Find out more about how this can help you and your staff.
