Test for cytomegalovirus

As with other members of the herpes virus family, cytomegalovirus (CMV) is typically latent after primary infection. It can reactivate when the immune system is significantly weakened, such as following organ transplantation, and cause fever, organ rejection and even death. Focus diagnostics’ Simplexa CMV molecular test kit on the 3M Integrated Cycler is now available in Europe. The test is designed to enable hospital labs to perform advanced molecular testing for CMV in patients with compromised immunity, particularly those undergoing organ transplantation. The test employs RT PCR to quantitatively detect CMV in whole blood specimens and plasma.
