Ellis offers surface and air SARS-CoV-2 (coronavirus) testing

SERVICES OFFERED.  Ellis offers SARS-CoV-2 (coronavirus) testing by way of:

  • Indoor air testing using a low flow sampling pump with PTFE filters (37 mm cassette)
  • Surface testing at common horizontal touch points using “PurBlu” specialty swabs.

SARS-CoV-2 transmission can occur by an infected individual’s droplets (> 5um in diameter, travel up to 1 meter) or by droplet nuclei (<5 um in diameter, travel greater than 1 meter).

Droplets (>5um) can occur by coughing, sneezing or talking (close contact-settle quickly).

Aerosol (<5um) can occur by breathing, talking, sneezing (stay in air longer – travel further).

Common means of transmission of SARS-CoV-2 are in enclosed spaces, prolonged exposure and in places of inadequate ventilation.
