Rotavirus is one of the main causes of acute gastroenteritis, particularly in children under two years of age. Transmission occurs through the fecal-oral route; the incubation period is between 1 and 3 days.
Adenovirus is the second leading cause of viral gastroenteritis in children (10-15%); they can also cause respiratory diseases and depending on the serotype, diarrhea, conjunctivitis, cystitis, and others. The main clinical symptom of gastroenteritis caused by adenovirus is diarrhea, for 9 to 12 days, also occurring with fever and vomiting.
Norovirus is considered the leading cause of nonbacterial AGE worldwide. It is responsible of 50% of the gastrointestinal outbreaks at any age and 73% in the elderly.
The OPERON Rota-Adeno-Noro chromatographic immunoassay is a procedure for the qualitative detection, in separate bands, of Rotavirus, Adenovirus and Norovirus genogroup I (GI) and genogroup II (GII) antigens in human faeces. A positive signal in either test bands provides a good indication that should draw the attention of the clinician to the possible presence of a Rotavirus, Adenovirus and/or Norovirus infection and contribute to the diagnosis of the patient.
