IET, Inc. can test surfaces for the presence of the COVID-19 Corona Virus. This is NOT a medical test but an environmental test that can be used to make sure a space is safe and ready for re-occupancy or to verify that sanitizing and cleaning were effective.  Perfect for patient rooms, pre-schools, office buildings, kitchens, break rooms, bathrooms, nursing homes, or homes where occupants were positive for the virus. The test uses a swab which is used to touch various surfaces. The swab is then stored in a vial containing a RNA/DNA Shield (inactivation buffer) and shipped to the lab for analysis.

Examples of surfaces to swab for detection of the Corona Virus COVID-19 include:

  • door knobs
  • TV remotes
  • counter tops
  • cell phones
  • remote controls,
  • Office phones
  • Keyboards
  • bathroom fixtures, etc.

The test can be performed by an IET technician or you can order a do-it-yourself test kit to be used by tenants, building managers, homeowners, maintenance personnel, office staff, human resources, etc. You can book an appointment or order the test kit here or call 608-241-9883 or 1.800.692.4783.
