Hepatitis virus A

Hepatitis A is an acute infectious disease of the liver caused by the hepatitis A virus (HAV), an RNA virus, usually spread the fecal-oral route, transmitted person-to-person, by ingestion of contaminated food or water or through direct contact with an infectious person. HAV only causes acute hepatitis and is not associated with chronic liver disease. Most individuals infected with HAV develop non-specific constitutional signs and symp-toms followed by gastrointestinal symptoms. Symptoms include fever, malaise, anorexia, nausea, abdominal discomfort, dark urine and jaundice. The disease course typically lasts less than 2 months. In rare cases, HAV can cause severe cases of fulmi-nant hepatitis with fatal outcomes in otherwise healthy adults.

HAV PCR kit is in vitro nucleic acid amplification test for qualitative detection of Hepatitis A virus RNA in the clinical material (blood plasma, feces) and environmental objects (water samples).

Kit contains Internal Control in order to check the isolation and reverse transcription process of each individual sample and to identify possible reaction inhibition.

For detection, 2 channels - FAM/Green and JOE/Yellow/HEX are needed.
