ViroInspect™ Rodent 1- The New Test for the Rapid Detection of Adventitious Viruses in Biopharmaceuticals

Greiner Bio-One introduced its first rapid molecular test of the ViroInspect™ product line designed for the detection of adventitious viruses in the manufacture of biopharmaceutical products – the ViroInspect™ Rodent 1.

The ViroInspect™ Rodent 1 is a ready-to-use qualitative test kit for the identification of Rodent Parvoviruses (including Mouse Minute Virus, MVM), Porcine Circoviruses 1/2 (PCV1/2) and Vesivirus 2117. Contaminations with these viruses had a negative impact on several biopharmaceutical companies within the last 20 years. Besides being a safety risk for patients, viral contaminations can cause the loss of product, prolonged production time, and the loss of a company’s reputation. Thus, they can result in considerable financial burdens for a biopharmaceutical company.

The ViroInspect™ Rodent 1 kit provides integrated sample preparation, extraction of viral DNA and RNA, reverse transcription, PCR amplification, and microarray hybridisation. It is part of a complete assay system including the CheckScanner™ and the CheckReport™Software.

In opposite to standard tests (in vitro cell culture and in vivo susceptibility tests) the ViroInspect™ Rodent 1 is characterised by short throughput times (less than 9 hours compared to 2-5 weeks), a high sensitivity, and a high specificity. It provides fast data analysis and the delivery of simple and precise results that enable ‘go’ and ‘no-go’ decisions in a timely manner thereby reducing the overall costs.
