With virus testing, it must be considered that there are no safe limits: a few viral particles may be sufficient to cause human outbreaks. 

 

Foodstuffs and food surfaces are highly complex matrices. Mérieux NutriSciences offers virus extraction techniques optimized according to the properties of the matrix. We integrate a full spectrum of services specifically related to virus detection, ranging from routine surveillance to training food handlers to meet hygiene requirements.

For years, difficulties in propagating viruses in cell cultures greatly hindered their detection in food. Advanced molecular approaches have considerably improved detection, with Real Time (RT) – PCR becoming a standard method worldwide.

Mérieux NutriSciences offers fast and reliable testing for Norovirus GI / GII and Hepatitis A testing in the following matrices:

 

  • 饮用水 
  •  食品接触面

在食品加工过程中(例如:收获前,生产过程中,准备期间),病毒最初接触到食品的时机可能发生在任何时候。应该优先考虑到在合适的位置病毒快速接触食品表面并随之产生的后果的机制。重点集中在考虑如何制定预防措施去避免病毒的污染,而不是尽力地去移除/失活食品中的病毒。

我们的食品检测水质检测服务也包括全方位的病毒检测。
