The RIDA®QUICK Rota/Adeno/Noro Combi is a single step immunochromatographic lateral flow assay for the differential qualitative detection of Rotavirus, Adenovirus and Norovirus of Genogroups I and II in human stool specimen.
Rotavirus is a double stranded RNA virus belonging to the Reoviridae family. The Rotavirus is one of the main aetiological agents of acute gastroenteritis in the whole world and main causal agent of severe dehydration in children between 6 months and 2 years. In developing countries, the Rotavirus infection is responsible of high infant mortality. The transmission of the virus occurs person to person via the faecal-oral route and, less frequently, through contaminated food or water. Rotavirus is classified into seven antigenic serogroups (A to G). Only Groups A, B and C infect humans, with Group A being the causing factor of almost all cases.
Adenovirus is the third leading cause of viral gastroenteritis in children (10 – 15 %). At least 51 adenovirus serotypes have been identified. Mainly Serotypes 40 and 41 are associated with gastroenteritis. The virus can also cause respiratory diseases and depending on the serotype, diarrhoea, conjunctivitis, cystitis, and others. The main clinical symptom of gastroenteritis caused by adenovirus is diarrhoea, for 9 to 12 days, also occurring with fever and vomiting.
Norovirus is a type of single-stranded, positive-sense RNA virus belonging to the Caliciviridae family. . Several studies demonstrate that Norovirus is the main cause of viral gastroenteritis at any age worldwide and responsible for almost 50% of gastroenteritis outbreaks. The virus usually causes large epidemics in closed communities (hospitals, homes for the elderly, schools, nurseries, restaurants, cruise ships, etc.). Norovirus are grouped in five genogroups (GGI to GGV). The majority of clinical cases are as a result of strains of the genogroups I and II.
