35% of participating senior communities were alerted of a potential outbreak when they found COVID-19 on a surface.
About Enviral Tech
Enviral Tech is a biotechnology company focused on environmental viral building surveillance solutions. Enviral Tech's patented COVID surface testing and COVID air testing provide early coronavirus detection for the health of communities, by preventing new infections and improving business and consumer confidence. Founded in March 2020, Enviral Tech has processed over 10,000 coronavirus surface tests in more than 100 facilities nationwide.
Why senior and senior care communities are using surface testing?
In recent weeks the number of COVID-19 cases has once again increased across the country, leading to delays of human test results. This is particularly dangerous for senior living and long-term care residents, as the disease spreads extremely rapidly in those communities, due to the precarious health of the residents.
Viruses such as SARS-CoV-2 and Influenza can deposit onto surfaces by infected individuals via droplets or soiled hands. This can happen when individuals are contagious, even if they do not exhibit symptoms. Being able to detect when and where they have shed the virus can therefore help prevent outbreaks within your community by giving early warning that a member of the community is currently infected, regardless of whether they exhibit symptoms or not.
Enviral Tech’s COVID surface utilizes the current COVID-19 testing gold standard same technology (RT-PCR) and is sensitive enough to detect a small number of viral particles on a swab.
Enviral Tech was founded in March 2020 by scientists to respond to the need for rapid testing for the COVID-19 global pandemic. Since then, we have tested over 10,000 surfaces with a 95.5% reliability. We are supporting over 100 senior and long-term care communities by enabling them to surveil their environment and detect viruses as soon as they are introduced into the community.
