Human Herpes virus Six (HHV-6) is an enveloped double-stranded DNA viruses, members of the human herpervirus family, causing the Roseola disease. Transmission is believed to occur most frequently through the shedding of viral particles into saliva. HHV-6 reactivation causes severe disease in transplant recipients and can lead to graft rejection, often in consort with other betaherpesviridae. Likewise in HIV/AIDS, HHV-6 reactivations cause disseminated infections leading to end organ disease and death. HHV-6 has been reported in multiple sclerosis patients and has been implicated as a co-factor in several other diseases, including chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, etc.
H-DiaH6QTM is a trusted and easy-to-use molecular diagnostic CE-IVD kit designed to qualitatively detect and quantify the Human Herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) in serum or plasma collected from potentially infected patients using real-time PCR.
