Intended use: The Rapid Astrovirus is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of Astrovirus antigens in human feces specimens to aid in the diagnosis of Astrovirus infection.
Description: Viral gastroenteritis is an infection caused by a variety of viruses that results in vomiting or diarrhea. Many different viruses can cause gastroenteritis, including rotaviruses, noroviruses, adenoviruses, sapoviruses, and astroviruses. The main symptoms of viral gastroenteritis are watery diarrhea and vomiting. The affected person may also have headache, fever, and abdominal cramps ("stomach ache").
