Rotavirus PAGE

Interpretation of PAGE Test for Rotavirus
The Rotavirus PAGE test detects rotaviruses in general and it identifies serogroups A, B and C specifically. Samples that are positive for rotavirus but fail to identify as serogroups A, B or C are termed 'Untypable'.

There are 8 serogroups of rotavirus (A to H). In the UK, serogroups A, B, C and E are known to affect pigs. Lambs are most susceptible to serogroup B, but occasional outbreaks involving A and C are seen. Serogroups A, D, F and G are known to affect chickens, turkeys, gamebirds and other avian species.
