Adenovirus hepatitis

Recently, the World Health Organisation (WHO) released a report on acute hepatitis in children with an unknown origin. Even though Adenovirus is a hypothesis as being one of the strongly associated reasons for Hepatitis in this report, it is still under investigation. United Kingdom is one of the highly affected countries. PCR analysis has been the first line of diagnosis. Blood sampling, respiratory sampling and stool sampling are being used to collect specimen. Respiratory specimen in a VTM such as the ∑-Virocult® (Viral transport media) and ∑-MM™ inactivation media can be used to collect samples.

Polio

Poliovirus can be cultured from faeces which usually goes through a prolonged cell culture process. MWE’s Faecal Transwab® compatible with PCR, would be a suitable medium to collect and transport the sample to the laboratory if faecal sample was not readily available or desirable.

It is imperative that any sampling device does not carry non-viable (dead) organisms as they may guide users towards the wrong conclusion. MWE products consistently pass every aspect of M40-A2 requirements, including absence of non-viable organisms.
