Strategies for Detecting New Viral Threats

Learn how scientists detect viral pathogens lurking in the environment to mitigate infectious disease threats. 

Researchers use wastewater and CRISPR to detect and track COVID-19 and other infectious diseases.

The COVID-19 pandemic took the world by surprise. Now, scientists race to detect newly emerging SARS-CoV-2 variants using various techniques, including molecular sequencing, computational modeling, and even biological waste tracking. Infectious disease surveillance is critical for charting the course of the ongoing pandemic and preventing the rise of yet another deadly pathogen. In this webinar brought to you by Sartorius, researchers will discuss viral surveillance efforts for SARS-CoV-2 and how to detect new viral threats.

Topics to be covered

  • COVID-19 surveillance using wastewater
  • Engineered CRISPR/Cas systems as next-generation diagnostics

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2022 | 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM Eastern Time
This webinar will be available to view live and on demand.
