Wheeler talks with Currents for story about wastewater testing on college campuses

IDEXX Currents interviewed Robert Wheeler, University of Maine associate professor of microbiology, about testing water from UMaine’s campus wastewater system for coronavirus. According to Wheeler, who is a member of the University of Maine System COVID-19 advisory board, analyzing wastewater complements the individual testing programs already in place. He has recruited a student experienced in environmental water testing and qPCR to assist with this sampling initiative.
