COVID-19: Impact of new SARS-CoV-2 test method validations in the fight against COVID-19 in the food industry

Direct transmission of SARS-CoV-2 from person-to-person is recognized as the main route of contamination. However, stability of SARS-CoV-2 on various surfaces has been demonstrated, and transmission of the virus from contaminated surfaces might be possible. Methods are now available to monitor SARS-CoV-2 in food production environments and evaluate the efficiency of sanitation processes. Find out more in this expert webinar with Danièle Sohier, senior manager, global scientific affairs – food production at Thermo Fisher Scientific, and Pat Bird, technical consultant at AOAC International.
