RT-PCR Testing for COVID-19
HP Environmental now offers lab-based testing for the presence of SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19. Testing for the presence of SARS-CoV-2 viral RNA on environmental surfaces is the most direct and definitive test for ensuring effective disinfection procedures. The COVID-19 virus analysis is based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s ‘Real-Time RT-PCR Panel for Detection’ and adapted and validated for environmental samples. In critical, high-risk scenarios, and for targeted testing of areas of known contamination, appropriately validated RT-qPCR methods can provide the highest level of confidence for businesses and workplaces looking to return to work while ensuring employee safety and health.
