ROTAVIRUS RAPID TEST

 

TESTING WITH THE ROTAVIRUS RAPID TEST

Rotavirus Rapid Tests are familiar rapid tests to most health clinics worldwide.  Why?  The answer lies in the fact that the rotavirus infection has been “the most common cause” of gastrointestinal problems, such as acute diarrhea, among infants and young children throughout the world.  Statistics have shown that on a global scale, nearly every child has at some point been infected with the rotavirus infection.  The Rotavirus Rapid Tests are intended to aid in the diagnosis of rotavirus infection and to monitor the effectiveness of therapeutic treatment of the rotavirus infection.   The name rotavirus comes from the wheel-like appearance of the virus when viewed by electron microscopy.  Children between the ages of 6 and 24 months are at greatest risk for developing severe infections from different strains of the rotavirus and thus prime candidates for testing using the Rotavirus rapid test.   Adults sometimes become infected, but the resulting illness is usually mild. Still, for both children and adults, many top health officials have endorsed the easy-to-use and convenient Rotavirus Rapid Test as a superior aid in treating rotavirus infections.  To prevent high hospital costs and annual economic strains on families worldwide, Rotavirus Rapid Tests are invaluable tools in keeping these costs down.  Early detection of the rotavirus infection, through use of a Rotavirus Rapid Test, has been the most effective instrument in controlling the spread of rotavirus infection.

 

NOTABLE FEATURES OF THE ROTAVIRUS RAPID TEST

A leader worldwide in manufacturing and supplying medical testing equipment, Diagnostic Automation/Cortez Diagnostics, Inc. offers a one-step Rotavirus Antigen Rapid Test (in cassette format) that is an in-vitro quantitative immunocromatographic assay for the rapid detection of rotavirus antigens in human stool specimen.  Simple to use and inexpensive, the Rotavirus Rapid Test is an accurate and rapid qualitative method for the detection of rotavirus in stool specimens of symptomatic patients.  The Rotavirus Rapid Test has shown 98% sensitivity and 97% specificity in rapid diagnosis and treatment of infection in patients.  The Rotavirus Rapid Test supplies quick and easy-to-read results, usually within 30 minutes.  Each Rotavirus Rapid Test cassette contains a test strip with rotavirus specific antibody on the Rotavirus rapid test region of the membrane and colored rotavirus antibody-gold conjugate pad.  If the stool specimen sample on the Rotavirus rapid test contains rotavirus antigens, the antigen will bind to the antibody coated on the strip.  The One Step Rotavirus Rapid Test, a sandwich solid phase immunochromatographic assay, will then show a red control line in Rotavirus rapid test window to indicate that the Rotavirus Rapid Test functioned properly.  If the Rotavirus antigen is not present, or lower than detection limit of the Rotavirus Rapid Test, only the control line will be visible.

TOP QUALITY ONE-STEP ROTAVIRUS RAPID TEST 

Labeled as the OneStep Rotavirus Antigen RapiCardTM InstaTest, Diagnostic Automation’s Rotavirus Rapid Test is simple, specific, rapid, and cost effective.  Medical tests conducted on the efficiency of the Rotavirus Rapid Test have shown that the Rotavirus Rapid Test is equally as accurate as the Rotavirus ELISA test available on the market today.  The test results revealed that the Rotavirus Rapid Test was just as sensitive as the direct electron microscopy of the Rotavirus ELISA test.  Studies concluded that the Rotavirus Rapid Test is an accurate and rapid qualitative method for the detection of rotavirus in stools of symptomatic children and adults.  Early and reliable detection, by using such tests as the Rotavirus Rapid Test, is very important to populations around the world in order to avoid further rotavirus infections within their communities.

 

RELATED PRODUCTS TO THE ROTAVIRUS RAPID TEST – Adenovirus/Rotavirus Rapid TestRotavirus ELISA Test

Worldwide, Rotavirus infection encompasses the single most important cause of acute abdominal problems, especially in infants and children.  However, other agents, such as adenovirus, are also associated with gastrointestinal problems. In relation to the Rotavirus Rapid Test, Diagnostic Automation/Cortez Diagnostics, Inc. features a combination Adenovirus/Rotavirus Rapid Test which is an in-vitro qualitative immunocromatographic assay for the rapid detection of adenovirus and rotavirus antigens in human stool specimens.  The Adenovirus/Rotavirus Rapid Test results are intended to aid in the diagnosis of rotavirus infection and to monitor the effectiveness of therapeutic treatment.  This Adenovirus/Rotavirus Rapid Test is for in-vitro use only.  Both the Rotavirus Rapid Test and the Adenovirus/Rotavirus Rapid Test are available in cassette format only.

 

An alternative method to these Rotavirus Rapid Tests is the Rotavirus ELISA test which is an in vitro procedure for the qualitative determination of rotavirus antigen in feces.  Diagnostic Automation/Cortez Diagnostics, Inc. offers a Rotavirus ELISA test that is a double antibody (sandwich) ELISA suitable for health organizations and clinics in the field in identifying a large number of samples obtained from rotavirus-infected patients. The advantage of using this Rotavirus ELISA test is the ability to test multiple samples over a period of time for those patients that are suspected of being positive for rotavirus.  Specificity and sensitivity of the Rotavirus ELISA test are just as reliable as the Rotavirus Rapid Test, with calculated specificity at 97% and sensitivity at 100%.
