Combat the spread of Coronavirus and protect people in high risk areas. With our simple test kits, you can detect SARS-CoV-2 virus on hard surfaces and in one hour.
- Reassure customers your business is free of detectable Coronavirus
- Detect workplace infections early by testing high-touch surfaces
- Validate your cleaning decontamination measures are effective
Environmental Monitoring: The Proactive Approach to COVID-19
SARS-CoV-2 is a recently discovered Coronavirus which causes the COVID-19 disease. The virus has been shown to be transmitted via droplets, aerosols, and surfaces. Surfaces become contaminated with the SARS-CoV-2 Coronavirus when aerosols and droplets fall from the air, or when touched by infected individuals. Studies have shown that the virus can remain viable and infectious on surfaces for up to five days.
Chai’s Coronavirus Environmental Test Kit allows hard surfaces such as desks, tables, phones, computer keyboards/mice, etc. to be tested for the virus. Absence of detectable virus gives confidence that cleaning and decontamination measures are effective, and can reassure customers and employees that a facility is managed safely.
Testing common, high-touch surfaces such as door handles and hand railings is especially useful in providing an early warning of infections in offices, schools, and senior care facilities. Viral detection can not only trigger decontamination measures, but additional controls such as diagnostic testing to get ahead of an infection.
Reassure customers and guests
Assure visitors your business is free of detectable Coronavirus, and that you take proactive measures when contamination is found
Ensure a safe facility
Testing high-touch surfaces provides an early indication of infections in workplaces, nursing homes, and schools
Validate your sanitation
Demonstrate the efficacy of routine cleaning as well as remediation after COVID-19 exposure
How it Works
Swab high-touch hard surfaces such as door handles, keyboards, phones, armrests, and tables.
Place swab into RNA extraction solution, which inactivates virus and stabilizes viral RNA for transport.
Prepare sample using test kit and place into Open qPCR instrument.
Get clear results in under an hour. Software automatically analyzes control reactions to ensure quality.
