ViroReal® Enterovirus


ViroReal EnterovirusRTGM gr├╝n RNA


Background: Enteroviruses are non-enveloped, positive single-stranded RNA viruses (ss(+)RNA) and are members of the family of Picornaviridae. The genus Enterovirus has a worldwide distribution and includes numerous viral groups infecting human beings, bovines, equines, simians, porcines and rodents. Enteroviruses infecting humans are poliovirus, coxsackievirus, echovirus, human enteroviruses and human rhinoviruses. Enteroviruses are the causative agents e.g. for poliomyelitis, aseptic meningitis, herpangina, hand-foot-mouth disease, hemorrhagic conjunctivitis, infection of the respiratory tract (summer flu, pharyngitis, pneumonia) and infection of inner organs (myocarditis, encephalitis, pleurodynia).

ViroReal® Enterovirus is a detection assay for rapid and sensitive detection of RNA of the the genus Enterovirus by reverse transcription real-time PCR. Rhinoviruses are detected with less sensitivity by this test (see ViroReal® Rhinovirus).

Internal Positive Control (IPC) ÔÇô not included, optional: For control of RNA extraction and exclusion of false-negative interpretation of results caused by inhibition of reverse transcription and real-time PCR an ingenetix Internal Positive RNA Control Assay can be optionally performed in a multiplex PCR, depending on the PCR-platform. Internal Positive RNA Control Assays (order no. RTGMIPCR1, 2 or 3) contain primers, a probe and an internal control RNA target in an extra tube (for control of RNA extraction and RT-PCR inhibition). See product description.

ViroReal® Assays detecting viral RNA are optimized to run under the same thermal cycling conditions and with the same amplification mix.
