The Dennehy Lab participated in a nationwide consortial project comparing the best protocols for monitoring SARS-CoV-2 in wastewater. Our pasteurize, filter, PEG concentrate protocol was among the best performing methods for quantifying SARS-CoV-2 concentrations in wastewater. The results are published in Environmental Science: Water Research & Technology.
