Wastewater surveillance is a highly effective, non-invasive public health tool to continuously identify and track the presence and epidemiologic characteristics of infectious pathogens in a localized environment. Data from such programs are useful for identifying and characterizing emerging pathogens, and this information can then be used to inform public health action.

Whether you are planning, outfitting or upgrading your wastewater pathogen surveillance program, Thermo Fisher Scientific offers you a comprehensive portfolio of technologies, products, solutions and services to support your program. With a demonstrated record of serving and supporting the needs of public health pathogen testing, we possess the depth of knowledge and experience you expect and need. Our comprehensive portfolio of products are here to help advance your research. See pathogen surveillance workflow.
