Influenza A real time PCR detection kit
The Flu Typing I kit allows the identification and specific differentiation of Influenza A (H1N1) pdm09 and H3N2 subtypes in respiratory samples from patients with signs and symptoms of respiratory infection.
Currently, Influenza A (H1N1) and Influenza A (H3N2) are the circulating seasonal Influenza A virus subtypes. This seasonal A (H1N1) virus is the same virus that caused the 2009 influenza pandemic. Influenza A (H3N2v) viruses were first detected in patients in 2011, with infections associated with prolonged exposure to pigs at agricultural fairs.
Real-time PCR assays have been shown to be a sensitive and specific diagnostic tool for the detection of the two subtypes of Influenza A (H1N1 and H3N2) that are currently in general circulation among humans.
VIASURE Flu Typing I Real Time PCR Detection Kit contains in each well all the components necessary for real time PCR assay in a stabilized format. RNA is extracted from specimens, amplified using RT-PCR and detected using fluorescent reporter dye probes specific for Influenza A (H1N1)pdm09 and H3N2 subtypes.
In addition, thanks to the lyophilization process, it is possible to send the kit to any part of the world at room temperature without the need for a cold chain or special conditions, as it remains perfectly functional for two years.
