ViroReal® Kit Rhinovirus (A, B, C) (CE-IVD)





Background: Human rhinovirus (HRV) is a 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 during fall and spring. Most cases are mild and self-limited. Rhinovirus C, unlike the A and B species, may be able to cause sometimes more severe infections.

ViroReal® Kit Rhinovirus (A, B, C) is an in vitro diagnostic test, based on one-step reverse transcription real-time PCR (RT-PCR), for the detection of human rhinovirus species A, B, C. 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
