The RIDASCREEN® Adenovirus test is an enzyme immunoassay for the qualitative identification of adenoviruses in stool samples.
Adenoviruses can be recognized by their typically icosahedral form with spiked structures on the surface. More than 50 different types of the adenovirus are known and can cause infections in the eyes, the respiratory tract, or the intestinal tract. Infections of the intestinal tract. are caused by the types 40 and 41 in particular.
Because gastroenteritis caused by an adenovirus cannot be clinically differentiated from infection with a rotavirus or an astrovirus, patients should always be tested for all three pathogens. The monoclonal antibodies used in RIDASCREEN® Adenovirus are reactive to the adenovirus-specific hexon protein, and the range includes both enteral types 40 and 41 as well as most other types of the virus which cause eye infections and infections of the respiratory tract.
