Human adenoviruses are nonenveloped viruses with an icosahedral nucleocapsid containing a double stranded DNA genome. Adenoviruses are unusually stable to chemical or physical agents and adverse pH conditions, allowing for prolonged survival outside of the body and water. Adenoviruses are spread primarily via respiratory droplets, however they can also be spread by fecal routes. They are involved in multiple diseases like respiratory tract infections, conjunctivitis, keratoconjunctivitis, gastroenteritis. Most people recover from adenovirus infections by themselves, but people with immunodeficiency sometimes die of adenovirus infections.
O-DiaADVTM is a trusted and easy-to-use molecular diagnostic CE-IVD kit designed to qualitatively detect adenoviruses in respiratory (bronchoalveolar lavage fluid, sputum, nasopharyngeal aspirates/swabs), blood (whole blood, plasma), and urine or stool samples using real-time PCR.
