MTMSA is excited to be a participant providing data samples in the Biobot COVID-19 Study. This is a scientific study in collaboration with researchers at MIT, Harvard and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, working to map trends in COVID-19 across the US. This data is obtained through the sampling of wastewater where copies of the virus are detected as infected persons shed the virus into the wastewater systems across the country.
We are proud to be a part of the discovery process in which the scientific community is striving to gain a better understanding of the invisible enemy we are all facing and we hope that with our participation and that of facilities like us, scientists and government leaders can increase planning and mitigation efforts.
