The VIRSeek Food Hepatitis A Virus real-time RT-PCR kit provides all reagents for the rapid detection of the hepatitis A virus in a number of food products including soft fruits, leaf, stem and bulb vegetables, bottled water, bivalve molluscan shellfish as well as on food surfaces. A viral concentration prior to RNA extraction is required for these sample types.
The kit is intended to be used by analytical laboratories for quality control / quality assurance testing, food and agricultural testing and research purposes only (e.g. virological monitoring of production processes).
The kit is not intended for clinical diagnostics and should therefore be regarded as “For Research Use Only”.
