Coronavirus Environmental Testing
Does your building have the virus that causes COVID-19?
Environmental testing can be a cost-effective means of quickly identifying potential sources of virus in a building without testing every individual that uses or passes through the building. We can help you evaluate the effectiveness of your strategies to reduce disease transmission risk indoors, including efforts such as cleaning, building operations and individual behaviors.
Here’s how it works:
First, we meet you virtually to understand your needs and determine if the University of Oregon is suited to meet your needs and establish a research agreement.
Second, you receive a kit and instructions, you select locations to swab surfaces and/or conduct air samples with our guidance, return them to the lab for testing.
Third, within 24 hours of receiving the samples, the lab will issue you simple report card about whether there is virus at those locations in your building.
These kits are not intended or approved for human diagnostic testing. Please do not send us samples collected from people, pets, etc.
