Evogen is developing solutions built on state-of-the-art molecular diagnostic technology that enables the rapid and accurate identification of a multitude of key pathogens in environmental samples. Simple detection is identified by a positive or negative result.
Environmental monitoring covers a diverse range of testing regimes with the requirement to test for the presence of a pathogen within the general environment and prior to any infection or adverse reaction. Evogen solutions can be deployed in testing of:
- Healthcare and clean room
- Water quality
- indoor air quality
- Laboratory animal facilities
- Farm animal facilities
- Food production sites
Biodefense processes have targeted incoming animals and, to a lesser extent, inanimate supplies and materials. Now, many institutions are realizing that monitoring the environment is as vital to overall management of disease risk as is direct monitoring.
An effective environmental monitoring program can give assurance that biodefense processes are functioning properly to minimize risk from the introduction of microbes into healthcare, food preparation or animal facilities. It can also be used to help detect and contain infection. Evogen’s molecular techniques offer faster, more reliable results compared to traditional surveillance methods.
