Rapid detection of rotavirus in faeces using a dipstick system with monoclonal antibodies and colloidal gold as marker.

Abstract

Rotavirus (RV) is known to be the most common cause of severe diarrhoea in infants and young children, each year leading to an estimated 800,000-900,000 deaths. RV also infects bovines and other species, with high morbidity and mortality. A rapid and simple 'naked-eye' dipstick system was developed to detect human RV in faeces, using nitrocellulose as solid… (More)
