Supporting Eurofins COVID-19 SentinelTM Program
BSTI has teamed with Eurofins QC to bring cost effective early detection of severe acute respiratory coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) outbreaks to facilities across the United States. The SARS-CoV-2 virus is the source of the COVID-19 pandemic. Studies have established that wastewater can be used as a leading indicator of SARS-CoV-2 outbreaks which can give facility and public health personnel a jump on individualized testing and containment measures.
Advantages of Wastewater Monitoring
- Earlier Detection of Outbreaks
- Ability to Proactively Monitor Larger Populations More Frequently
- Highly Cost Effective Compared to Individual Testing
- Results within 48 Hours
Eurofins QC has introduced their SentinelTM Program that focuses on the analytical side of the process. BSTI’s role is to support facilities by providing the equipment and information to install and collect the wastewater samples for shipment to the laboratory. BSTI’s three Service Level offerings are attractively priced and readily customizable.

Best for facilities that have available and knowledgeable hands-on personnel to install the equipment, perform routine equipment upkeep and implement the sampling program. An easy-to-follow Users Guide and a BSTI technical support contact will be provided with the equipment. This option includes the following:
