Genogroup II.4 norovirus (NoV) remains the predominant NoV strain in food- and water-borne outbreaks. Capsid integrity as well as viral RNA persistence were determined for GII.4 NoV by real-time RT-PCR after 1–14 freeze/thaw (F/T) cycles (−80 °C/+22 °C) or after −80 °C storage for up to 120 days. In both cases, capsid integrity and viral RNA titers remained(More)
