responsible for most of viral gastroenteritis outbreaks

Rotaviruses are non enveloped, double strand RNA viruses. These viruses are responsible for the majority of gastroentiritis in children. In adults, infections due to rotavirus are underestimated and sometimes asymtomatic. The large majority of gastroenteritis are due to group A rotavirus. Their mode of transmission is via the feco-oral route. After excretion in human stool, due to their structural properties, rotavirus can resist to different physical and chemical treatments.

ROTAVIRUS food poisoning

Adsorbed on particles, they can survive in different kind of environment for a long period. Food can be contaminated by a food-handler during the various stages of food production or via the environment. Thanks to their structural properties, rotaviruses can persit to different food processes. The consumption of contaminated food can lead to outbreaks in population.

methods of choice for RV detection

The diagnostic by cellular culture or ELISA is not adapted to the detection of rotavirus in environmental or food samples. Molecular techniques (real time RT-PCR) are the methods of choice for rotavirus detection after extraction and viral RNA purification from the sample.
