Posted on November 28 2011Mononucleosis or "Mono" is a disease that many know as the “kissing disease.” You may remember hearing about this disease in high school or junior high, or if you have teenagers as this demographic seems to be the most susceptible to the disease. The symptoms of mono are flu-like, and testing for this disease is simple. Doctors can use systems such as the Mono II Test Kit by Acceva (pictured above) to test for the disease.
