The City of Houston and Rice University have implemented a comprehensive, cost-effective system for monitoring community infection dynamics for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
We have also been working to expand our system to include additional targets, including:
Respiratory Viruses: Influenza A, Influenza B, Respiratory Syncytial Virus
Antibiotic Resistant Genes: NDM, IMP, VIM, OXA-48, KPC, rpoB
Enteric Viruses: Astrovirus, Adenovirus 40/41, Norovirus GI, Norovirus GII, Rotavirus A, Sapovirus
Other Pathogens: Candida auris, Salmonella, Cryptosporidium, Campylobacter jejuni
