Researchers from University of Valladolid and Burgos (Spain) and University of Florianópolis (Brazil) used our PhAST Blue device to distinguish between infectious and non-infectious human adenovirus-2 (HAdV-2) and mengovirus (vMC0) in complex animal-related food matrices by PMA-qPCR/RT-qPCR. The results show a promising alternative for accurate measure of the health risk associated to contaminated food samples.
