Phytocontrol proposes an innovative analysis method allowing simultaneous qualitative and quantitative research

of GI, GII and Hepatitis A noroviruses in plants by real-time PCR.

Noroviruses and hepatitis A are the main enteroviruses responsible for collective foodborne infections. They are transmitted through human-to-human contact, consumption of contaminated food, contact with contaminated water or food surfaces, or contact with contaminated materials. Seafood, leafy vegetables and red fruits are among the food groups most often associated with norovirus outbreaks.

Phytocontrol developed an innovative analysis method allowing the simultaneous qualitative and quantitative research of norovirus GI, GII and Hepatitis A in plants by real-time PCR. The control of viral risk in the food industry is linked to the HACCP approach and therefore falls within the framework of the Hygiene Package which harmonises the level of health safety in Europe.
Since 2013, numerous European alerts (RASFF) have been issued concerning the detection of these viruses in various foodstuffs. At present, no regulatory threshold has been set at European level.
