MS2 phage (MS2 Ø) is a coli phage, non-pathogenic to eukaryotic cells, which has been used as a simulant for viral biothreats, such as those causing smallpox and hemorrhagic fever. MS2 Ø consists of an icosahedral capsid, 28nm in diameter, and a single stranded RNA genome; the viral capsid is comp

F-RNA coliphages, part of the gut flora and likely to be deposited on meat along with other enteric organisms during carcass dressing and processing, may be regarded as an indicator and/or surrogate for potential zoonotic enteric viruses. There is no recommended sampling method for viruses on meats
Virus inactivation is one of the most important factors that controls virus fate and transport in the subsurface. In this study the inactivation of viruses in the presence of quartz sand was examined. The bacteriophages MS2 and ΦX174 were used as model viruses. Experiments were performed at 4°C an
