Adenovirus is a highly common infection and is estimated to be the cause of 2% to 5% of all respiratory infections. It is spread from close personal contact with an infected individual. This includes shaking hands with or touching an infected individual or being in close proximity when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
Most adenovirus infections are mild and may only require simple care to relieve symptoms. Serious infections are rare.
Consult your doctors if symptoms worsen.

The Adenovirus Test Kit is administered using the human stool.
To use the Adenovirus Test Kit, apply a diluted stool sample to the cassette and wait for 5 to 10 minutes. However, bring specimens to room temperature prior to testing. The results will be visible on the window of the cassette. If adenovirus antigens are present, an indicator line will appear in the window. If the antigen is not present or the levels are lower than the detection test limit, a red control line will appear. If neither line appears, the test is invalid. Specimens with extensive particulate should be clarified by centrifugation prior to use.
Do not use specimens with fibrin particles or ones that are contaminated with microbial growth. Human stool specimens may be stored at 2-8°C for up to 7 days prior to assaying. For long-term storage, specimens should be kept frozen below -20°C. Frozen specimens must be completely thawed and mixed prior to testing. Specimens should not be frozen and thawed repeatedly. If specimens are to be shipped, they should be packed in compliance with local regulations covering the transportation of etiologic agents.
- Standard precautions for handling infectious agents should be observed when using this kit;
- Wear standard protective clothing such as a lab coat and disposable gloves when handling specimens and assay reagents in accordance with local regulations;
- Wash hands thoroughly after use;
- In the case of wash solution contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice.
