SARS-CoV-2 Surface & Air Testing
  • Artemis on Point – Virus Detection Service
    • SARS-CoV-2 virus presence/absence test & viral load. Note: does not determine infectious vs. inactivated virus.
    • Clearance after large case counts (all building types), quantifying potentially infectious viral loads (especially health care – e.g. congregate care wings and individual rooms), ensuring engineering controls & environmental services are effective, or clearance for returning COVID wards to normal care levels. Available for all building types.
  • Surface testing is also available that can aid in clearance testing. Used in combination with biological indicators showing a 3-5 Log reduction through proper cleaning & disinfection.

  • Humidity for Health
    • 50% Relative Humidity is the sweet spot for minimizing SARS-CoV-2 viability to <1%!
    • A significant and often unrecognized opportunity to add humidification to buildings exists in climate zones 3-8. For New York – Kennedy International Airport (see graphs below) & mid-Atlantic this opportunity exists from Sept. – early June.
    • ALL buildings can benefit from humidification and de-humidification maintaining relative humidity between 40-60% for health, optimal functioning, and low infectivity.
    • Edifice Rx provides building envelope evaluation, consulting, and provides equipment solutions partnered with leading manufacturers.
    • Additionally, Edifice Rx provides air quality monitoring as a service to trend various IAQ parameters including relative humidity. Sensors can be placed in wall cavities and attics to monitor relative humidity at critical building envelope surfaces. Occupants can provide IAQ feedback via companion app and IAQ sensor data can be integrated into building automation systems (BAS).
