Background: Adenoviruses are non-enveloped, double-stranded, linear DNA viruses (dsDNA) belonging to the family Adenoviridae, genus Mastadenovirus. At present seven human adenovirus species are known (A-G) which are divided in more than 50 serotypes. They can cause diseases of the respiratory tract, but also gastroenteritis, conjunctivitis, cystitis, rhinitis, pharyngitis or diarrhoea. Human adenoviruses have a worldwide distribution.

Description: ViroReal® Kit Adenovirus uses real-time PCR for the detection of the hexon gene of the so far known species A-G of adenovirus. Our carefully designed primers and probe ensure highest sensitivity and specificity. The kit consists of an assay mix for the detection of the pathogen as well as a positive control and an internal positive control (IPC). To minimize PCR cross-contamination,the reaction mix included contains dUTP and uracil-N glycosylase (UNG). For more detailed information see here.
