Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a common virus that occurs widely among the population. In the U.S., 50%-85% of adults have been infected with cytomegalovirus (CMV). Most people who are infected with the virus do not experience any significant symptoms or health problems. CMV testing involves either a measurement of cytomegalovirus antibodies, immune proteins produced in response to CMV exposure, or the detection of the virus itself. CMV is found in many body fluids during an active infection, including saliva, urine, blood, breast milk, semen, vaginal secretions, and cerebrospinal fluid.
It is easily transmitted to others through close physical contact or by contact with infected objects such as diapers or toys. The cytomegalovirus (CMV) test is important as the virus causes significant health problems among the population. In infants, a CMV infection causes serious physical and developmental problems. Most newborns (about 90%) who are infected appear healthy at birth but may develop hearing or vision problems, pneumonia, seizures, and/or delayed mental development a few months later.

A few babies may be stillborn, while others may have symptoms at birth such as jaundice, anemia, an enlarged spleen or liver, and a small head. CMV test assays aid in the detection of cytomegalovirus. This is likely expand the research capabilities on cytomegalovirus (CMV) drugs and enable new diagnostic and treatment applications for patients. Many research institutes and laboratories are focusing on cytomegalovirus (CMV) tests for the diagnosis of cytomegalovirus through different technologies. Modulation of a unique technology and approach by physicians ensures better functional ability of this test. New developments in pharmological and CMV vaccine therapy approaches allow to image the function of immune system at the cellular and molecular level. This is positively affecting early diagnosis and treatment of diseases.
Major players operating in the global cytomegalovirus (CMV) test market include Abbott, Danaher Corporation, Becton Dickinson, bioMerieux, Bio-Rad, Eiken Chemical, Elitech Group, Enzo Biochem, and Fujirebio.
