Likely the case you need API calls to online virus services or SDK with AV commandline incorporated. The api interface will mostly be RESTFUL based or web services based. But most of the time, it may not be the whole payload and simply the hash of the file is a quicker option..

Some area to look at are

a) VT - https://www.virustotal.com/en/documentation/public-api/#scanning-files
(Script include .NET @ https://www.virustotal.com/en/documentation/public-api/#scripts-interact)

b) Shadowserver (more of whitelisting though) - http://bin-test.shadowserver.org/

c) ClamAv (use of C# from Clamson) - http://www.clamav.net/lang/en/download/third-party-tools/3rdparty-library/

d) Metascan (multi-AV scanner) api (client, ICAP or online) (Commerical) -
