Xpert® Norovirus

Accurate and Easy to Use with Fast Results When Time Matters

Xpert<sup>®</sup> Norovirus

The Need

Norovirus is a highly contagious virus and is the most common cause of viral gastroenteritis worldwide. Globally, the virus affects approximately 267 million people and causes over 200,000 deaths each year.1

  • Norovirus outbreaks in healthcare institutions require immediate implementation of infection control measures to avoid ward closures
  • Patients with acute diarrhea should be placed into isolation until proven non-infectious2
  • The majority of Norovirus infections are caused by genotype I & genotype II (GI & GII) — both of which must be tested for to ensure proper outbreak prevention and management
