AdenoStick One Step Test # R-5188

Adenoviruses have been implicated in a wide range of clinical diseases affecting mainly the respiratory, ocular and the gastrointestinal systems of the human. Respiratory illnesses include the acute febrile pharyngitis, pharyngoconjuctival fever, pneumonia and the acute respiratory disease. Ocular adenoviral infections have three basic modes of presentation: epidemic keratoconjuctivitis, pharyngoconjuctival fever and nonspecific follicular conjunctivitis.  In addition, some adenoviruses are enteric and have emerged as a major source of pediatric gastroenteritis.


There are 41 known human adenoviruses, differentiated primarily by serological and DNA analysis. Many serotypes are known to cause specific syndromes in humans. Morphologically, the adenoviruses are non-enveloped icosahedral structures about 80 nm in diameter. The antibodies used in this test utilize the recognition of group specific antigens present in the 41 types of adenoviruses.


The antibodies we use in the kit react with the following serotypes:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8,  9, 10, 11, 12, 14, 16, 18, 19, 20, 26, 31, 34, 35, 36, 37, 40 and 41. The antibodies haven't been tested against the other serotypes, but there is no particular reason to think that they would not be recognized as well.


The One Step AdenoStick 1-Step Test (Cat. No R-5188) is a rapid test for the qualitative detection of various adenovirus types present in eye swabs, nasal and pharyngeal secretions, fecal material and cell culture supernatant. This test is for professional use.
