Parechovirus (PeV) splits in two species A and B belonging to the familiy of Picornaviridae with six human pathogen viruses hPeV1 to hPEV6 (formerly accounted as echovirus). They cause mild, gastrointestinal or respiratory illness, but have been implicated in cases of myocarditis and encephalitis. Most humans are infected within an age of less than five years.

Additional Reagents required
LightCycler® Multiplex RNA Virus Master

A 78 bp long fragments from the 5-UTR region is amplified with specific primers and detected with a FAM labeled hydrolysis probe (530 channel).

This assay detects 10 genome equivalent copies or less per reaction (in vitro transcribed RNA).
