Genogroup 2 monoclonal antibodies coated on the membrane.
How to use?
The Norovirus Test Cassette (Feces) is a qualitative, lateral flow immunoassay for the detection of Norovirus in
human feces specimens.
The assay uses Genogroup 1 and Genogroup 2 specific monoclonal antibodies coated on the test membrane.
During testing, the stool specimen reacts with the conjugate antibodies. The mixture migrates upward on the
membrane chromatographically by capillary action to react with Genogroup 1 and 2 antibodies on the
membrane and generates a colored line at the level of the T1 and T2 zone respectively. The presence of a
colored line in T1 region indicates a positive result for Genogroup 1 and in T2 region for Genogroup 2
respectively, while its absence indicates a negative result. To serve as a procedural control, a colored line
will always appear in the control reaction zone (C) indicating that proper volume of specimen has been added
and membrane wicking has occurred.
Noroviruses (NoV) are a genetically diverse group of single stranded RNA, nonenvelopped viruses belonging to
the Caliciviridae family. For decades they were called “small round structured viruses” (SRSV) or “Norwalk-like
viruses” until recently when their taxonomy was investigated using modern molecular techniques. Initially four
antigenic types of SRSV were recognized, but more recently three genogroups have been identified with the
genus Norovirus. Genogroup 1 and Genogroup 2 are associated with human infections whilst Genogroup 3 is
associated with bovine and porcine infection.
Noroviruses are a major cause of acute gastroenteritis worldwide, often causing explosive outbreaks in
institutions. They are highly contagious, with an inoculum of as few as ten particles being able to cause
infection. Transmission occurs through ingesting contaminated food and water and by person-to-person spread. Transmission is predominantly faecal-oral but may be airborne due to aerosolisation of
vomitus, which typically contains abundant infectious virus particles. Outbreaks may involve several routes
of transmission. The illness is acute, usually mild, although it has caused fatalities among the frail elderly,
and self-limiting and follows an incubation period of 24-48 hours although cases can occur within 12 hours
of exposure. The ability of Noroviruses to cause outbreaks in institutions has become a major public health
issue. Outbreaks of Norovirus infection can be associated with restaurants and institutions as diverse as
nursing homes, hospitals and elite sporting camps. Infections in infants, elderly or frail patients can be fatal
if left untreated.
The symptoms of Norovirus illness usually include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and some stomach cramping.
Sometimes people additionally have a low-grade fever, chills, headache, muscle aches, and a general sense
of tiredness. The illness often begins suddenly, and the infected person may feel very sick. In most people the
illness is self-limiting with symptoms lasting for about 1 or 2 days. In general, children experience more
vomiting than adults.
The Norovirus Rapid Test Cassette (Feces) is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative
detection of Norovirus in human feces specimens to aid in the diagnosis of Norovirus infection.
A rapid, one step test for the qualitative detection of Norovirus in human feces.
