For real-time NASBA® amplification and detection of enterovirus RNA


A Complete Molecular Solution
After isolating the target RNA from the sample using the NucliSENS magnetic extraction platforms, the NucliSENS EasyQ® Enterovirus assay is run directly on the automated NucliSENS EasyQ analyzer. The combination of NucliSENS EasyQ Enterovirus Reagents with the two platforms and associated reagents provides a complete and standardized molecular testing solution.

The CE marked NucliSENS EasyQ Enterovirus Reagents and platform can easily be used in routine by all laboratories and full technical support is offered through the bioMérieux network.

The kit generates a conclusive and consequently truly useful result. A positive result means that enterovirus RNA is present in the sample. A negative result is systematically validated by the presence of an internal homologous control, providing an incomparable level of quality assurance.

Same-day result
The total turn-around-time from extraction to final result is approximately 4 hours, giving a same-day result. This rapid result responds to the urgent clinical need of both the physician and patient.

High Sensitivity and Specificity
Using magnetic extraction, this assay detects 263 copies of in vitro transcribed enterovirus RNA per nucleic acid extract (equivalent of 11 enterovirus RNA copies per µl extract) with a 95% hit rate(1).

The assay is capable of detecting RNA from the major enterovirus serotype groups : poliovirus 1-3; coxsackievirus A2-12, A15-A18, A20, A21, A24; coxsackievirus B1-6, echovirus 1-9, 11-15, 17-21, 24-27, 29-33 and enterovirus 68-71(1,2).
