THE SIMPLEST WAY TO TEST SURFACES FOR THE PRESENCE OF SARS-CoV-2


Do It Yourself!

①  Add 15 drops of reagent to the tube

②   Soak the swab, then wring it out

③   Swab the surface you wish to test

④  Stir the swab in the reagent & wring it out

⑤  Insert a detection strip into the tube 

⑥  Read the results 15' later 

NEGATIVE

POSITIVE

CHOOSING THE RIGHT TEST FOR DETECTING SURFACE CONTAMINATION


When it comes to hygiene testing, time-to-result is of the essence, because obtaining a negative result quickly allows another round of cleaning and sanitization to take place before normal activities resume.


The effectiveness of sanitization procedures is routinely monitored by assessing the quantity of microorganisms present, either using culture methods, which are quantitative and very informative but slow, or by measuring ATP, which is qualitative and less informative but rapid.



The main advantages of Immuno-Detection over PCR are true portability and simplicity: no equipment, electricity, or expertise is required. 


Although both PCR and Immuno-Detection are rapid techniques that can be performed within minutes, PCR requires sophisticated equipment and expertise, and is often only available in a laboratory setting. Immuno-Detection tests in a laminar flow format, such as pregnancy test strips, can be carried out by virtually anyone, anywhere, under any conditions, and constitute a reliable indicator of the status of the person or location tested.

Benefits


  • Reassures the public that surfaces have been tested for live virus and sanitized
  • Improves sanitation procedures by incorporating routine testing for viral traces
  • Immediate sanitization after a positive on-site test prevents further exposure to the virus
  • Increases testing and monitoring data to support your sanitation procedures

WHAT DOES A POSITIVE OR NEGATIVE RESULT MEAN?


A positive test result indicates that the SARS-CoV protein N is present in the sample at a concentration greater than the detection limit.


A positive result does not indicate whether the virus is inactivated or infectious.


In the case of a hygiene test, a positive result indicates that the cleaning and disinfection procedure has failed to fulfill its purpose.


In the case of investigating surfaces suspected of contamination, a positive result confirms the recent presence of the virus.


In both cases, a positive result suggests that the sampled surface should be cleaned, sanitized, and retested.

SURFACE TESTING REASSURES YOURSELF AND OTHERS

Proper cleaning and sanitization are key to eliminating the threat of invisible COVID-19 contamination, particularly in highly frequented locations with "high-touch" surfaces. If you want to reassure members of the public who use your facility, your collaborators, and other stakeholders that your facility is safe, 

strengthen the impact of your sanitization procedures by demonstrating that they are effective. 


The COV-Hygien Xpress test is a DIY kit that can be used by almost anyone, anytime, anywhere.

With results obtained in minutes, surface contamination can be addressed quickly, so everyone can relax.
