IVD Test Reagent/Kits, Molecular Assay, Infection, Virus, Hepatitis E
Definition : Molecular assay reagents intended to identify hepatitis E virus, an RNA virus of the genus Calicivirus, family Caliciviridae, by detecting the nucleic acid of the target virus. Hepatitis E virus may cause hepatitis, a disease characterized by jaundice and the increase of some enzymes in serum (e.g., aspartate aminotransferase); these viruses are transmitted by the fecal-oral route or via contaminated food or water and are endemic in some geographic areas. Hepatitis E virus is especially dangerous for pregnant women.
