LIR Biotech completed a prawn viral screening turn-key project for a leading sea-food processor in eastern Kalimantan early November 2008. Export of frozen prawns to certain countries now requires viral inspection to ensure a clean bill of health. The new enhanced biosecurity is to ensure that exotic virsuses are not introduced into importing countries. Some of the frozen prawns are used as bait for commercial or sports angling.
The project involved lab design , hardware supply, right detection platform and hands on training. We integrate the whole process from sample processing, PCR techniques, results intepretation and trouble shooting.
