Viruses

Foodborne viruses can cause various, sometimes serious conditions. Contamination of foods is usually through infected persons or contaminated waste water. Viruses can not reproduce on food, but small amounts of residing viruses may be sufficient to cause infection.
The standard method for virus detection in food is PCR. BIOTECON Diagnostics offers a norovirus real-time PCR kit specifically for the investigation of food.
