COVID-19, pathogen & allergen testing 

ALS provides routine analysis services to test critical environmental surfaces for the presence and persistence of SARSCoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, pathogens and allergens. Test results are intended to help monitor and strengthen the effectiveness of disinfection and sanitation measures, particularly after outbreaks or positive tests in a business, care home, or public facility.

Wastewater Testing
Measure the prevalence of COVID-19 in communities & anticipate outbreaks. Regular and on-going monitoring of wastewater effluent can provide an early indication of SARS-CoV-2 outbreak in populations, possibly while occupants are asymptomatic but potentially contagious. Real time, quantitative Polymerase Chain Reaction (rtPCR) testing for the virus responsible for COVID-19 can provide trend data indicative of viral load over time. 

Audits & inspections 

Audits and inspections are provided by Ceres Certification, International (CCI), an ISO 17065 certification body. CCI developed an industry-supported standard built upon recommendations and best practices from thought leaders in industry, government, academia and international agencies to create a best-in-class, single source reference for comprehensive pandemic preparation.
