Fast Diagnostic Screen
of 7 Viral Agents
Comprehensive Viral Screening of G.I. Viruses
The seven viral groups that can be identified in stool specimens by transmission electron microscopy include: Rotavirus, Adenovirus, Astrovirus, Norovirus (Norwalk-like Virus), Sapovirus, Pico/Parvoviruses and Enteric Coronavirus. The enteric coronaviruses can resemble classic respiratory-type viruses with a “corona” of protruding peplomers, or a more pleomorphic type with a flexible fringe like the Toroviruses (the type usually observed in Arizona and other dry, warm climates around the world).
