ROTADENO Screen Test
At-home test for rotavirus and adenovirus
Rotaviruses are the most common cause of diarrhoea among infants and young children. This and several similar viruses are also the most common cause of the so-called stomach flu. By the age of 5, almost all children get the virus at least once.
Adenovirus infection causes various diseases. They most often affect young people and children, especially in infancy. It has been proven that most children get infections with one or more types of adenoviruses.
Rotavirus and adenovirus infections are easily spread through contact with contaminated objects. Annual outbreaks usually occur in the fall and spring, but can be less seasonal depending on the geographic area. Adenovirus is commonly associated with bronchitis, keratoconjunctivitis when present in the respiratory tract, gastroenteritis, and pharyngitis.
The ROTADENO-Screen® test is a rapid immunodiagnostic test for the detection of rotavirus and/or adenovirus in a stool sample. The test is accurate and has been used for more than 20 years by professionals in hospitals and laboratories.
