Cytomegalovirus (CMV) Rapid Detection Kit
The CMV Rapid Test is a chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of IgG and/or IgM antibodies to Cytomegalovirus (CMV) in human whole blood, serum and plasma specimens.
Cytomegalovirus is a herpes virus and a leading biological factor causing congenital abnormalities as well as complications among blood transfusions and immunosuppressive therapy patients. A large amount of CMV infected pregnant women secondarily infect their fetus. When acquired in-utero, the infection may cause mental retardation, blindness and/or deafness. Serological tests for detecting the presence of antibodies to CMV can provide valuable information regarding diagnosis and immune response. This CMV Rapid Test can also be utilized for screening blood transfusion donors, where some of the recipients may be newborns or immune-compromised.
