Detect Norovirus in Ready-to-Eat Vegetables with RT-PCR Kit

The foodproof® Norovirus Detection Kit (GI, GII) quickly and reliably detects noroviruses of genogroups GI and GII in food and drinking water samples by real-time PCR.

Noroviruses are considered to be the main agent for gastrointestinal diseases in humans worldwide. Of the five known only genogroups GI and GII are pathogenic to humans.

The most common infecting norovirus is genogroup II genotype 4 (GII.4). Infection may be direct from person to person or indirect, such as through contaminated food.

Though extremely stable viruses, they can become inactivated during cooking. Outbreaks are frequently observed in community facilities, such as commercial kitchens and school cafeterias.

The foodproof Norovirus Detection Kit (GI, GII) is designed for a one-step real-time reverse transcriptase PCR for the simultaneous, qualitative detection and differentiation of norovirus of the genogroup I and II and the process control (MS2). The kit contains an additional phage process control based on primers and probes of the ISO/TS 15216 and the §64 German Food and Feed Code (LFGB).
