Coronavirus Detection from Aerosols
PCR based Detection of SARS-CoV-2 from Gelatin Membrane Filter
The outbreak and distribution of the acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) has emerged as one of the biggest challenges to global healthcare and economic systems. Since the main routes of SARS-CoV-2 transmission via aerosols are becoming more and more evident, scientific, political and health institutions are taking their stance, emphasizing the urge and need for further research on airborne pathways of the virus either as droplets or aerosols.
With the ongoing pandemic, reliable air monitoring solutions will become crucial to measure and manage pandemic dynamics. In this study, we demonstrate the successful detection of SARS-CoV-2 reference virus from gelatin filters and provide guidance on how to integrate gelatin air samples into a virus detecting PCR protocol.
