A consecutive centrifugal method was developed to concentrate enteric viruses from water. Using five selected human enteric viruses, the recovery rates were evaluated and compared with results from NanoCeram filtration methods. The highest recovery rate was achieved for coxsackievirus (78.11 %, 42.97-101.39), and the lowest rate was for adenovirus (32.84 %, 19.68-66.20). In comparison with NanoCeram disc filtration with beef-extract flocculation (BE), the recovery rate was increased for all… 



Pre-analytical and analytical procedures for the detection of enteric viruses and enterovirus in water samples.

New Electropositive Filter for Concentrating Enteroviruses and Noroviruses from Large Volumes of Water

NanoCeram filters can be used as an inexpensive alternative to 1MDS filters for routine viral monitoring of water and recovery efficiencies of poliovirus, coxsackievirus B5, and echovirus 7 from 100-liter samples of seeded tap water are suggested.

New Method Using a Positively Charged Microporous Filter and Ultrafiltration for Concentration of Viruses from Tap Water

The NanoCeram virus sampler, an electropositive pleated microporous filter composed of microglass filaments coated with nanoalumina fibers, was evaluated and appears to be compatible with both cell culture and PCR assays.

Evaluation of an Ultrafiltration-Based Procedure for Simultaneous Recovery of Diverse Microbes in Source Waters

The recovery data demonstrate that UF can be an effective method for concentrating diverse microbes from ground and surface waters and highlights the utility of tangential-flow hollow fiber ultrafiltration for recovery of bacteria, viruses, and parasites from large volume environmental water samples.

Concentration and Recovery of Viruses from Water: A Comprehensive Review

While the majority of available filters have demonstrated high virus retention efficiencies, the methods to elute and reconcentrate viruses have met with varying degrees of success due to the biological variability of viruses present in water.

Comparison of 2 ultrafiltration systems for the concentration of seeded viruses from environmental waters.

The small pilot hollow fiber ultrafilter was used to test recovery of seeded viruses from surface waters from different geographical regions in 10-L volumes, and recoveries >70% were observed from all locations.

The combination of the improved filter elution procedure and the roller bottle assay for viral analysis makes large-scale virus studies of groundwater systems practical.

A Multiplex Reverse Transcription-PCR Method for Detection of Human Enteric Viruses in Groundwater

A procedure with which to remove environmental RT-PCR inhibitors from groundwater samples was developed and human enteric viruses were detected in 16% of the groundwater samples analyzed, with reoviruses being the most frequently detected virus group.
