PATH and the University of Washington are working to refine the bag-mediated filtration system (BMFS) that collects wastewater or sewage in a bag, and passes it through a simple filter that binds Poliovirus (PV). The goal of this project is to develop, validate, and commercialize a new environmental surveillance tool to assist in global eradication of PV.
