Certification of Rapid Methods for SARS-CoV-2 -Program Partner Sponsorship Presentation - AOAC
2:00 PM - 2:15 PMThu
AOAC Research Institute
This presentation will describe the ground-breaking new program to evaluate and certify rapid methods to detect SARS-COV-2 viruses on environmental surfaces. This novel AOAC program will address a pressing public health issue of reliably detecting SARS-COV-2 viruses. This unique project will employ in silico analysis for the first time for the evaluation of a rapid microbiology method. It is expected that in silico analysis will become the industry standard for validation of rapid microbiology methods. This limited project for detection of SARS-COV-2 viruses on stainless steel surfaces will be expanded to other environmental surfaces and possibly in foods.
