Enteric viruses are shed in the feces and may be present in environmental waters. Their detection in wastewater, even at low concentration, is a major challenge. In this study, recoveries of Echovirus 7 (EV7), virions and RNA in wastewater, using virus concentration methods were determined to evaluate the detection of infectious viruses and the possibility(More)
In the virus detection protocol for sludge, the viral elution step from solids to solution is critical. In this study, mengoviruses were detected in artificially contaminated sludge with a qRT-PCR assay. The viral yields ranged between 19 and 66 % for 60 % sludge. This study demonstrates that mengovirus can be used as a sample process control for analysis(More)
