Wastewater-based epidemiology (WBE) is a new tool that reveals what pathogens are circulating within a community. Scientists tracking infectious diseases through municipal wastewater testing can use the information they gather to mount more appropriate outbreak responses.
In this webinar brought to you by Streck, Michael Wiley will describe the wastewater surveillance program in Nebraska and discuss how WBE can protect communities from future outbreaks.
Topics to be covered
- An overview of wastewater epidemiology
- A review of wastewater surveillance systems and the process of surveillance data collection and reporting
- A workflow for SARS-CoV-2 detection in municipal wastewater
- Ways to utilize wastewater epidemiology for current and emerging pathogens
