ViroReal® Kit Enterovirus (CE IVD)





Background: Enteroviruses are non-enveloped, positive single-stranded RNA viruses (ss(+)RNA) and are members of the family Picornaviridae. The genus Enterovirus has a worldwide distribution and includes numerous viral groups infecting humans, 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 infection of the respiratory tract (summer flu, pharyngitis, pneumonia) and infection of inner organs (myocarditis, encephalitis, pleurodynia), aseptic meningitis, herpangina, hand-foot-mouth disease, hemorrhagic conjunctivitis and poliomyelitis.

ViroReal® Kit Enterovirus is an in vitro diagnostic test, based on one-step reverse transcription real-time PCR (RT-PCR), for the detection of enterovirus.  The following serotypes can be detected: Coxsackie-Virus A1, coxsackie-virus A5, coxsackie-virus A6, coxsackie-virus A13, coxsackie-virus A21, coxsackie-virus B2, coxsackie-virus B3, coxsackie-virus B5, echovirus 1, echovirus 6, echovirus 11, echovirus 14, echovirus 30, enterovirus 71, enterovirus 90, enterovirus 99, enterovirus D68, poliovirus type 1, poliovirus type 2 and poliovirus type 3. Some rhinoviruses can be detected, but with lower sensitivity. The included internal RNA positive control system can be used as RNA extraction and RT-PCR inhibition control.

Sensitivity and specificity: See manual or product description
