BIOTECON Diagnostics Launches a Real-Time PCR Kit for Norovirus

Norovirus real-time PCR

BIOTECON Diagnostics GmbH have launched the foodproof® Norovirus Detection Kit (GI, GII, GIV) — a fast, sensitive, easy-to-use, molecular diagnostic kit, designed for food testing in quality laboratories of food manufactures, analytical service providers and government laboratories.

Simultaneous, qualitative detection and differentiation of noroviruses from genogroups I, II and IV is possible with this kit using a one-step real-time reverse transcriptase PCR. Based on primers and probes of the ISO/TS 15216 method and §64 German Food and Feed Code (LFGB), the foodproof® Norovirus Detection Kit (GI, GII, GIV) contains an additional phage process control.

This kit is intended for food testing purposes, and thus was verified for performance with a large variety of foods. This verification was made in conjunction with the foodproof® Virus Sample Preparation Kit to extract highly purified norovirus RNA from food. Applicability of the foodproof® Norovirus Detection Kit (GI, GII, GIV) has been shown on all open real-time PCR platforms with appropriate technology for monitoring labeled, 5’ nuclease probes.
