We are proud to announce the launch of our brand new VIRSeek Solution. The VIRSeek Solution is an ISO-compliant workflow for the detection of viruses in food and drinking water. The solution is comprised of five kits, which cover all steps from RNA extraction to real-time RT-PCR detection of hepatitis A virus, norovirus genogroups I & II as well as the process control murine norovirus.
The VIRSeekSolution consists of the following kits:
• VIRSeek Food Hepatitis A Virus
• VIRSeek Food Norovirus Genogroup I
• VIRSeek Food Norovirus Genogroup II
• VIRSeek Food Murine Norovirus (MNV) Process Control

The kit was designed as a real-time PCR-based method for the specific and exclusive identification of Salmonella enterica subsp. salamae serotype Tranoroa in food, feed and environmental matrices. Presumptive positive results for Salmonella spp. can be re-tested rapidly and reliably for S. Tranoroa, directly from the original lysates, allowing for proper process control mechanisms to be implemented without a high demand of additional hardware and consumables. It effortlessly integrates into the BACGene Salmonella spp. workflow and requires no separate lysis steps. Shop the kit online
