- ... Human hepatitis E virus (HEV) causes acute hepatitis in humans, predominantly by contamination of food and water. HEV, in particular genotype III, is currently considered to be an emerging pathogen in industrialized countries. Because of the low infectious dose, an efficient and rapid virus concentration method is required to detect low amounts of HEV in food and water samples for routine control. ...

- ... Detection of food-borne viruses such as noroviruses, rotaviruses and hepatitis A virus in food products differs from detection of most food-borne bacteria, as most of these viruses cannot be cultivated in cell culture to date. Therefore, detection of food-borne viruses in food products requires multiple steps: first, virus extraction; second, purification of the viral genomic material (RNA for the ...
