Public health labs are using wastewater as a means to detect the emergence and spread of pandemic outbreaks. These epidemiological monitoring programs help effectively track infection rates for communities in advance of evidence from clinical tests.
The Concentrating Pipette (CP) Select™ is recommended by both CDC-endorsed analysis platforms for the National Wastewater Surveillance System (NWSS)
The National Wastewater Surveillance System (NWSS) supported by the CDC and the Association of Public Health Labs (APHL) endorses only Qiagen and Bio-Rad analysis platforms; both recommend the CP Select in their protocols as a front-end concentration step.
The CP Select™ effectively concentrates pathogens of concern from raw and primary wastewater influent. Our process simplifies workflow, reduces labor, and improves the limit of detection, The instrument fits into Bio-safety cabinets for increased ease and safety - perfect for mobile labs. Pairs perfectly with PCR and sequencing methods.
Faster – Sample Concentration is automated taking only 5-10 minutes
Easier – The intuitive menu tells you what to do at every step. No special skill required.
Better – Concentrates larger volumes than other methods allow, thereby improving your limit of detection.
Safer – Reduced sample handling. The Concentrating Pipette fits in a biosafety cabinet.
