The Norovirus test is one-step immunochromatographic test for the differential detection of Norovirus Genogroups I and II in human faeces.
Noroviruses are a type of single-stranded, positive-sense RNA viruses belonging to the family Caliciviridae They are highly contagious viruses whose main routes of transmission are: person-to-person contact and through contaminated food/water (in the U.S. is estimated that they account for 50% of gastrointestinal outbreaks by food poisoning). They often cause large outbreaks in closed communities in a variety of environments such as hospitals, nursing homes, schools, kindergarten, restaurants, cruises, ... where, once the virus has been introduced, the infection spreads very quickly.
Although Noroviruses can be detected throughout the year, it has been clearly observed that there is a seasonal prevalence with peaks during autumn and winter.
Noroviruses are grouped into five Genogroups (GI to GV), of which GI and GII are involved in most acute cases of viral gastroenteritis in humans.
