Transplant Pathogen Monitoring

Enterovirus ELITe MGB® Kit

Enteroviruses are ubiquitous viruses responsible for a wide range of mild and severe diseases, and leading causes of viral meningitis in both immunocompetent and immunocompromised patients.  Rapid meningitis testing is crucial, especially in transplant patients, to quickly set up an appropriate treatment for meningitis and rule out bacterial infection.

Enterovirus ELITe MGB® Kit is a one step, reverse-transcription and real-time PCR assay designed for the detection and quantification of Enterovirus RNA. The assay is CE-IVD validated on a large range of sample types, in combination with ELITe InGenius®, a fully automated sample-to-result solution.
