Webinar: Deploying SARS-CoV-2 wastewater monitoring in Kansas: A case study and adoption of high-throughput, automated sample processing

June 7 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

“The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the potential role that wastewater-based epidemiology (WBE) can play in assessing aggregate community health. However, efforts to translate SARS-CoV-2 gene copy numbers obtained from wastewater samples into meaningful community health indicators are nascent. This work will highlight two efforts to promote the use of WBE: 1) comparison of SARS-CoV-2 wastewater measurements during a low-frequency and a high-frequency clinical testing period and 2) adoption of automated, high-throughput methods to enable state-wide monitoring in Kansas.”
