Hepatitis A Testing Service - Mérieux NutriSciences
Recently there have been several cases of Hepatitis A declared in Australia suspected to be from the consumption of frozen berries. Amongst the various berries implicated as the source of the contamination were raspberries, blueberries, strawberries and blackberries but the exact source of the Hepatitis A virus is still unconfirmed. The suspected berries were sourced from Asia and Latin America and were packed in Asia before being imported into Australia. As of today, 18 cases have been confirmed which raises concern about food testing for imported goods.
With laboratories specializing in virus detection in Italy and in the USA, Mérieux NutriSciences helps professionals from the food industry prevent such outbreaks by providing expert testing for hepatitis A in a number of matrices, including fruits, vegetables, shellfish, species & herbs, ready-to-eat products, water and food surfaces.
