Enteric Virus Detection
What are Enteric Viruses?
Enteric viruses are responsible for causing gastroenteritis and other diseases on a worldwide scale. They affect both human and animal alike and spread through a variety of methods including water and food.
This assay employs mammalian cell cultures of primate origin (Buffalo green monkey kidney cells) to permit the virus population to multiply sufficiently to facilitate detection. A most probable number (MPN) technique is employed to estimate the number of virus particles in the original sample.
