Primerdesign Launches Real-Time PCR Workflow for Onsite Detection of Norovirus in Oysters  

·       genesig Easy_oys Detection Kit offers rapid and reliable qPCR workflow to quantify Norovirus GI and GII pathogens in oyster tissue

·       Onsite analysis helps ensure shellfish quality and safety across the production line, reducing public health risk

·       Developed in collaboration with oyster farmers and Shellfish Association of Great Britain

·       Primerdesign presented new developments in Norovirus testing at ACIG: Aquaculture innovation and supply chain resilience (June 25, 2024)

On June 25, 2024, Primerdesign (part of the Novacyt Group), a company focused on the design, manufacture, validation, and supply of real-time PCR kits and reagents, launched the genesig® Easy_oys Detection Kit for Norovirus in oysters. The quantitative PCR (qPCR) assay enables rapid and reliable detection of genogroup (G)I and GII Norovirus pathogens in oyster tissue. The user-friendly workflow offers a cost-effective solution that can be used on site to identify the contamination points across the production line, helping to reduce public health risk and minimise shellfish farm closures.
