|Abstract: ||Zeta plus filter membranes (ZP60S) have been shown to be efficient for
rotavirus concentration from wastewater and for the reduction of
cytotoxicity for cell cultures. Recently a variability in both
properties was observed. In view of the low costs and the high virus
recovery rates obtained in the past, we re-evaluated the application of
ZP60S filter membranes for virus concentration from environmental
samples. Some factors that could interfere with the concentration
strategy using ZP60S were also considered and assessed including the
type of water to be filtered and the possible release of toxic
substances from the membrane matrix during filtration.|
