Several groups of viruses may infect humans after ingestion. Of these, norovirus and hepatitis A are recognised as the most important human food-borne pathogens. Indeed, norovirus is considered to be one of the main causes of gastroenteritis in the humans of all age groups and is estimated to be responsible for 68%-80% of all outbreaks of gastroenteritis in the industrialised countries.  

 

I work with development of methods for concentration, detection and identification of viruses from food and water, with main focus on drinking water.  

 

Furthermore I assess the bactericidal and fungicidal activity of disinfectants used in the Danish food industry (counsultancy for The Dansich Veterinary and Food Administration)
