VIRAPREP® concentrates and elutes somatic coliphages and F-specific RNA bacteriophages from your water samples.
VIRAPREP® meets the standard ISO EN 10705-3 and is compatible with 10705-1 and -2.
Excellent concentration and elution yields for any kind of water.
Limit of detection compliant with the European requirements.
Analyse from 10 to 100 ml with the same kit (possibility to scale up to 1 litre).
Significantly reduce the analysis time.
Proving the absence of these viruses in water ensures the treatment’s efficiency against all viruses.

*If a biological indicator is not present in sufficient quantity in raw waste water to achieve the log10 reduction, the absence of such biological indicator in reclaimed water shall mean that the validation requirements are complied with.
“We have been using the VIRAPREP® kit routinely since the beginning of the year to concentrate somatic coliphages in water. Easy-to-use and fast, it meets our requirements in terms of efficiency. We now have the COFRAC accreditation for both direct and concentration methods for coliphage analysis.”Marion MimbielleTechnical manager - BIOFAQ
“The LD31 EVA uses the VIRAPREP® kit to concentrate the F-specific RNA bacteriophages. We obtain high recovery yields between 77% and 94% for drinking water and between 72% and 89% bottled water. The VIRAPREP® kit is handy and easy-to-use.”Dolores MontielR&D and innovation manager - LD31 EVA
