Do you need more information

VIKIA® Rota-Adeno is a rapid, qualitative, chromatographic immunoassay for the simultaneous detection of rotaviruses and adenoviruses, which are responsible for the majority of pediatric diarrhea cases. Rapid diagnosis of the infectious agent avoids unnecessary antibiotic treatment and leads to rapid isolation of infected patients.

High performance

  • Very low viral detection limit:
    • Lower than ELISA or latex tests
    • Enables diagnosis of diarrhea with low viral loads
    • No need for stool suspension sedimentation: use of a minute stool sample for a quicker result
  • High sensitivity relative to another ICT test*:
    Rotavirus : 100 % [96.3 - 100]
    Adenovirus : 97.6 % [87.4 - 99.6]
  • High specificity relative to another ICT test *: 100 % [98.6 - 100]

* See package insert for performance details.

Extreme ease of use

  • One single stool extract for the simultaneous detection of rotaviruses and adenoviruses
  • Only 10 minutes from sample dispense to results
  • Just 3 steps to perform directly on stool specimens:

50 mg (size equivalent to 1/4 of a pea) or 50 µl of stool diluted in the vial and homogenized

2- Dispensation:
2 drops dispensed into the cassette sample well

3- Reading:
Blue line = rotavirus
Red line = adenovirus
No control line = invalid test


  • After stool collection, everything required for the procedure is included in the kit: vials with sticks, disposable specimen droppers
  • Safe procedure: very limited contact with stool specimen
