CNS infections

Infections of the Central Nervous System (CNS) comprise meningitis (affecting the meninges), encephalitis (affecting brain parenchyma) and myelitis (affecting the spinal cord). Rapid identification of viruses causing CNS is key for efficient patient management: discharge of patients with enteroviral meningitis, appropriate antiviral therapy for HSV encephalitis… bioMérieux offers molecular assays as well as rapid automated and manual tests for detection of these life-threatening viruses.
