BK Virus (BKV) is a highly prevalent and asymptomatic polyomavirus in the general population, and a major cause of renal infection in immunocompromised patients. Latent BKV is frequently reactivated after kidney and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, leading to renal dysfunction and potentially graft loss. BKV viral load monitoring is crucial for patient management in order to prevent renal diseases and transplant failure.
BKV ELITe MGB® Kit is a real-time PCR assay designed for the detection and quantification of BK virus DNA. The assay is CE-IVD validated on diverse range of sample types, in combination with ELITe InGenius®, a fully automated sample-to-result solution.
