Criterion’s field Scientists are trained and equipped for the following services regarding COVID-19:

  • Bioaerosol Monitoring – Airborne SARS CoV-2
  • Surface Sampling – SARS CoV-2

Cleaning Verification:

Surfaces are tested for mold and/or Bacteria. This is a good substitute for directly measuring      SARS CoV-2.

Cleaning verification can also be performed using ATP chemilluminescence, although it does not detect viruses, it is an extremely sensitive method for detecting any living micro organisms.

SARS CoV-2 Bioaerosol Monitoring Samples are collected using state-of-the-art High Volume, wet- wall sampler. Surface samples are collected using specialized sampling swabs.

Analysis in our laboratory is by Reverse Transcription quantitative PCR (RT-qPCR).

Surface Sampling for Cleaning and Disinfection Verification.

  • Surface testing for bacteria and/or mold
  • Surface testing for ATP
