COVID-19 SURFACE TESTING

Assured Bio allows inspectors to collect both single site and pooled composite surface samples. Single site sampling involves collecting from multiple touch point locations using a single swab while pooled composite sampling is the act of combining multiple single‐site composite swabs into a single analysis. If a pooled sample result is positive, we have the ability to analyze the individual swabs to pinpoint the source of contamination. When collecting surface samples, it is important to swab areas that are commonly and regularly touched or contacted by an occupant as they go about daily life. These areas are known as touch points.

Touch point surfaces may include:

  • Lightswitches

  • Door knobs
  • Elevator Buttons
  • Handrails
  • Etc.

COVID-19 AIR TESTING

Assured Bio offers a multitude of options when it comes to collecting air samples. Our patented M-TRAP® air sampling cassette collects samples that can be analyzed for COVID-19. Our M-TRAP®s can be used in conjunction with our WhisperCare® continuous air monitoring system to heighten the detailed results of your facility’s air quality.

SUBMITTING YOUR SAMPLE

Please contact Assured Bio before submitting your COVID-19 samples. Our lab will provide the swabs, storage bags, chain of custody form, and sampling protocol. Be sure to carefully read our sampling protocol prior to collecting your sample. This will help increase the accuracy of your results and help maintain the safety of you and our staff.
