Rubella virus

Rubella virus belongs to the family Togaviridae. It causes mild infection characterized by rash starting on the face and gradually spreading to the feet, fever, lymphadenopathy and other flu-like symptoms such as coughing, sore throat and sneezing. Older children and adults may experience joint involvement and purpuric rash. Women in their first trimester who contract rubella have an increased risk of passing the infection to the developing foetus. When contracted during the first trimester the effects on the child are most marked. Ocular, cardiovascular and central nervous system defects are common, along with deafness and intrauterine growth retardation. Second trimester infections are associated with deafness, retinopathy, microcephaly and mental retardation, while third trimester infections are associated with intrauterine growth retardation.

Rubella virus PCR kit is used for detection of cDNA after reverse transcription of viral RNA (RT kit is included) extracted from various biological samles as plasma, saliva, throat swabs, amniotic fluid. Internal Control allows to control efficiency of RNA extraction, as well as RT and PCR process.

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