Rapid and Accurate Detection of Norovirus

Norovirus Detection kit
Microgen Bioproducts has extended the company's range of rapid immunochromatographic tests for the major causes of viral gastroenteritis by releasing Noroscreen for the direct detection of Norovirus from faecal samples.

Noroscreen is a rapid, sensitive and specific, one-step cassette which detects and differentiates Norovirus Genogroup I and Genogroup II in faecal samples within 15 minutes.
What advantages does it have?
  • Supplied with an easy-to-use sample preparation devise that minimises sample handling

  • Results within 15 minutes

  • Detects and differentiates Genogroup I and Genogroup II

  • One-step assay; no need to add additional conjugates or substrates.

  • Low detection limit: detects 104 genome copies

  • High sensitivity (95.65%) and specificity (91.67%)

The ease-of-use and accuracy of Noroscreen makes this test a valuable addition to the testing regime when rapid demonstration of enteric viruses is required e.g. patient isolation policy, outbreak situations or screening prior to admission.

Noroscreen complements the current range of products for the detection of Rotavirus and Adenovirus from Microgen Bioproducts. The range includes an immunochromatographic cassette and dipstick, an enzyme-immunoassay and a rapid latex agglutination test for the detection of Rotavirus and Adenovirus from faecal samples.
