Rota/Adenovirus 2in1Test 

Catalog No.: BG302S


Rotavirus is the primary causative agent of acute gastro-enteritis, especially in children less than 2 years old. Its discovery in 1973 and its association with infantile gastro-enteritis represented a very important advance in the study of gastro-enteritis not caused by acute bacterial infection. Rotavirus is transmitted by oral-faecal contact with an incubation period of 1-3 days etc.

The Adenovirus is the second most common cause of viral gastro-enteritis in children (10-15%). This virus may also cause respiratory diseases and, depending on the serotype, also diarrhea, conjunctivitis, cystitis, etc. At least 47 serotypes of adenovirus have been described, all sharing a common hexon antigen. Serotypes 40 and 41 are the ones associated with gastro-enteritis, whose main symptom is diarrhoea that may last between 9 and 12 days associated with temperature and vomits.
