COVID-19

Untap provides a COVID-19 monitoring service
to reduce transmission in your community
We provide an early warning system, detecting the presence of carriers whether they are
  • 1. Symptomatic
  • 2. Pre-symptomatic: Up to a week before symptoms
  • 3. Asymptomatic
Daily monitoring enables the appropriate response to the measured risk

Wastewater surveillance can detect COVID-19, or any other virus, to understand community prevalence and to identify rising and falling case rates. Using PCR technology, wastewater surveillance can achieve 96% positive detection rates (sensitive) and 100% negative detection rates (specific). Unlike blood or saliva tests, where individuals must give time and submit to invasive testing procedures, wastewater monitoring is 100% passive, and the data is already anonymised.

FAQs

Where is wastewater surveillance used?

The UK government used wastewater surveillance as an early warning system to detect local outbreaks across the country. This data showed a spike in COVID-19 on the South Coast despite relatively low numbers of people seeking tests.

How does wastewater surveillance work?

Wastewaster from the building is aggregated over the day and PCR tested onsite.
This gives the COVID-19 prevalence in the community.
Same day COVID-19 data.

What communities can you monitor?

We can monitor any community that live or work in a common building

When will Untap be available?

How accurate is wastewater surveillance?

Wastewater surveillance can detect one infected person in 10,000 healthy people

How much does it cost?

Onsite community testing costs less than lateral flow testing the whole community with the same frequency and is more accurate
