DiaPlexC™ RV13 Detection Kit

The DiaPlexC™ RV13 Detection Kit is designed to detect 13 major respiratory viruses using the Multiplex RT-PCR technology which can detect multiple specific target genes in a single PCR.

Pathogen Information

Viral infections are among the leading causes of respiratory disease in children. Most of these infections are caused by respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), influenza virus A or B (infA or InfB), parainfluenza virus (PIV), rhinovirus (RV), or adenovirus (AdV). Several recently discovered viruses, such as human metapneumovirus (hMPV), human bocavirus (hBoV), Enterovirus (EV) and the human coronaviruses (hCoVs) 229E and OC43, have been identified as potential respiratory pathogens.
