Transplant Pathogen Monitoring

Adenovirus ELITe MGB® Kit

Adenoviruses are important causes of infections in both immunocompetent and immunocompromised individuals, and leading causes of morbidity and mortality, especially in children.
Latent adenovirus reactivation, or transmission during transplantation, can be responsible for disseminated infection and graft loss.
Adenovirus detection and viral load monitoring, by molecular methods, is essential to quickly set up an appropriate antiviral treatment and prevent serious complications.
Adenovirus ELITe MGB® Kit is a real-time PCR assay designed for the detection and quantification of Adenovirus DNA. The assay is CE-IVD validated on different sample types, in combination with ELITe InGenius®, a fully automated sample-to-result solution.
