Hepatitis A Testing in Food / Shellfish / Water

Hepatitis A virus detection by Real Time PCR (RT-PCR)

BioVir has been trained in the detection of Hepatitis A in food products using molecular techniques, focusing on raw materials such as berries, herbs and shellfish.

In addition to detection of Hepatitis A virus in food, BioVir has isolated Norwalk from water sources by filter concentration, cell culture for subsequent identification by molecular techniques (ie. Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)). 


Food Matrices tested include:

  • Raw Materials

  • Raw Shellfish

  • Juices

  • Herbs

  • Berries

  • Irrigation and Process Water
