Concentration and Processing of Waterborne Viruses By Positive Charge 1mds Cartridge Filters and Organic Flocculation

spacer
Abstract:This chapter describes the most widely used virus adsorption-elution (VIRADEL) method for recovering human enteric viruses from water matrices (Fout et al., 1996). The method takes advantage of postively charged cartridge filters to concentrate viruses from water. The major advantage of methods that use these filters over those described in Chapters 5 and 6 that use negatively charged filters is that additives are not normally needed to achieve virus adsorption to filters.
