Novacyt RUO Adenovirus F41 Assay

Novacyt has launched a research-use-only PCR assay for the detection of adenovirus F41 in response to recent cases of acute hepatitis in children. The assay has been developed in two forms, Genesig Advanced and Genesig Easy, designed for in vitro detection of adenovirus species F serotype 41 genomes, without detecting any closely related adenovirus sequences. Genesig Advanced is configured for use with any open test platform, including Novacyt's MyGo instruments, while Genesig Easy is suitable for use on the company's q16 and q32 instruments.
