The RIDASCREEN® Rotavirus test is an enzyme immunoassay for the qualitative determination of rotaviruses in stool samples.
Rotaviruses are the major pathogens involved in non-bacterial gastroenteritis among children in the age group 6 months to 3 years. They may also be identified as the cause of disease in older children and adults. In the risk groups – children, elderly, and immunosuppressed patients – these infections can be fatal.
