Enteric Viral Screening

EV001 – EasyScreen™ Enteric Viral Detection Kit

EV001 (100RXNS) & EV001-HT (500RXNS)

For the detection of (i) Norovirus GI, (ii) Norovirus GII, (iii) Astrovirus, (iv) Rotavirus A, (v) Rotavirus B (vi) Enterovirus (vii) Adenovirus and (viii) Adenovirus (40 + 41 only) in faecal specimens. The multiplexed PCR is performed over three PCR wells and includes an Extraction Control (EC) in each well, to monitor RNA integrity and PCR inhibition, in the following layout:
