"Researchers from the University of the Philippines-Natural Sciences Research Institute (UP NSRI) are currently developing a kit that could offer a cheaper and faster way to detect enteric viruses, commonly blamed for water and foodborne diseases like gastroenteritis.
"This could detect several types of enteric viruses, such as enterovirus, norovirus, astrovirus, just by getting one sample. As this could detect up to six kinds of viruses, the patients would no longer need to spend for several tests," project leader Joy Ann Santos said."
