ViroReal® Kit RSV (CE-IVD)





Background: Human respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a negative-sense, single-stranded RNA virus (ss (-)RNA) of the family Paramyxoviridae. RSV consists of two antigenic subtypes, A and B. It causes respiratory tract infections and is a major cause of lower respiratory tract infections and hospital visits during infancy and childhood. In addition, RSV is recognized as an important cause of respiratory illness in older adults. Infection is most common during the winter and early spring e.g. in the rainy season.

ViroReal® Kit RSV (A & B) is an in vitro diagnostic test, based on one-step reverse transcription real-time PCR (RT-PCR), for the detection of human respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) strains lineages A and B. 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
