Viruses

Foodborne viruses can cause various, sometimes serious conditions. Contamination of food and bottled water is usually through infected persons or contaminated waste water. Viruses can not reproduce on food or in water, but small amounts of residing viruses may be sufficient to cause infection.
The standard method for virus detection in food and water samples is PCR. BIOTECON Diagnostics offers a Hepatitis A virus kit, a norovirus real-time PCR kit and a new multiplex system for both virus particles specifically for the investigation of food. All kits contain a ready-to-use Process Control solution. With each sample you can detect a Process Control (MS2-phage in our case).
