SURROGATE Coronavirus Testing Information

Surface area sampling may be performed to indicate the bacterial population of a particular area.  Wipe samples are indicated when bacterial growth is suspect and when enumeration and identification of the bacteria may be relevant to a particular situation.  The assessment of microorganisms may be useful in evaluating the hygienic status of a particular environment.
This test code can be used to evaluate the existing microbial population of a surface area and also to evaluate the effectiveness of surface cleaning by using the bacterial bioburden and the categories of bacterial isolated (human respiratory/activity vs environmental) as an indicator for the potential of viral presence.  It reflects a clinical protocol using Blood Agar to recover respiratory organisms such as alpha strep, gamma strep, gnr, S. aureus, etc. in addition to recovering environmental bacteria for a more complete picture of the bacterial population.
