ViroReal® Rhinovirus A, B, C


ViroReal Rhinovirus A B CRTGM gr├╝n RNA



Background: Human rhinovirus is an single-stranded positive sense RNA virus (ss(+)RNA) in the genus Enterovirus of the family Picornaviridae. Rhinoviruses are the most common viral infective agents in humans and are the predominant cause of the common cold. RV infections are chiefly limited to the upper respiratory tract. Although infections occur year-round, the incidence is highest in the fall and the spring. Most cases are mild and self-limited. Rhinovirus C, unlike the A and B species, may be able to cause severe infections.

ViroReal® Rhinovirus A, B, C is a detection assay for rapid and sensitive detection of RNA of the human rhinovirus A, B and C by reverse transcription real-time PCR.

Also available as CE-IVD certified kitversion: ViroReal® Kit Rhinovirus (A, B, C)

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. See product description.

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