This antibody reacts with G2 glycoproteins of Puumala (Kazan, Vranica) and Dobrava hantaviruses and recognizes hantavirus-infected cells. It does not cross-react with hantavirus G1 glycoprotein or with rubella virus glycoprotein.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

The members of the Hantavirus genus of the family Bunyaviridae are spherical, enveloped viruses containing tripartite negative-sense RNA as their genome. The three genomic RNA segments, designated L, M, and S, encode an RNA-dependent RNA polymerase, envelope glycoproteins (G1 and G2), and nucleocapsid (N) protein, respectively. Hantavirus infections can cause two serious and often fatal human diseases, hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome and hantaviral pulmonary syndrome, characterized by lung damage and cardiac dysfunction. Humans are infected with hantaviruses from rodent reservoirs that are persistently infected without signs of disease.
