SCROLL DOWN FOR THE PERSPECTIVE OF THE FOOD SUPPLY CHAIN ON COVID-19
The SARS CoV-2 is a recently discovered coronavirus, which has caused the pandemic COVID-19 outbreak. Due to the virus’ potential for a prolonged tenacity on surfaces, transmission through contaminated surfaces is being investigated as a possible route of exposure.
SARS-CoV-2 kits from Eurofins Technologies will enable organizations in diverse industries to help test, determine, monitor and eventually strengthen the effectiveness of sanitation measures put in place.
NOACK Group is providing these SARS-CoV-2 kits for environmental monitoring. The kits are available from now on and can be purchased immediately and very easy online.
VIRSeek SARS-CoV-2 Ident
The assay is a one-step real-time RT-PCR to specifically detect the RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RdRP-gene) of the SARS-CoV-2 virus
The following webinar summarizes the current state of knowledge about the coronavirus, its epidemiology, transmission and control from the perspective of the food supply chain. Besides many unknowns and, frankly, false information, there are also scientific facts that can be capitalized upon to help manage the situation from the perspective of food producers, processors, retailers and consumers.
