With the ceeramTools assays for detecting and identifying NOROVIRUS in any type of food matrices and Surfaces, it is now possible to anticipate and organize regular controls with your molecular laboratory.
NorovirusGenogroup I and II noroviruses are non enveloped and single strand RNA viruses. These human enteric viruses are responsible for most of viral gastroenteritis outbreaks. They are pathogenic for all age groups of the population. These viruses are very infectious; one to ten viral particles are sufficient to get sick. Their mode of transmission is the feco-oral route. After excretion in human stool, due to their structural properties, noroviruses can resist to different physical and chemical treatment.
Adsorbed on particles, they can survive in different kind of environment for a long period. Food samples can be contaminated via food handlers or by the environment. Due to their structural properties, norovirus can survive to different food process. The consumption of contaminated food can lead to human outbreak. There is no cell culture system available for the multiplication of human noroviruses.
