Covid-19 Test for Surfaces

Are your employees and working surfaces safe from the coronavirus?

Safe and clean work environments are crucial even in the best of times. In the face of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, monitoring your work environment for SARS-CoV-2 has two additional and significant benefits:

  1. Routine surface testing gives you a head start in the fight to quickly contain COVID-19 outbreaks. Asymptomatic and pre-symptomatic individuals may shed virus for days before they even think about getting tested or staying home. Surface testing for the coronavirus alerts you to the presence of infected individuals early, allows you to implement your safety plan quickly, and helps you keep your team healthy.
  2. It’s necessary to frequently validate and verify cleaning protocols. High-touch surfaces on production and packing lines, on shared equipment, and in shared work areas can all spread infection if they are not sanitized thoroughly and often.

Accordingly, Emport LLC is proud to offer analysis of environmental surfaces for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

Thanks to our ISO17025-certified, high-complexity / CLIA partner lab in Seattle, we are able to offer rapid information on the safety of your working surfaces and the potential presence of COVID-19 virus within your office or production facility.
