|Influenza Virus A / B - Influenza A and B viruses routinely spread in people are responsible for seasonal flu epidemics. The emergence of a new influenza virus causing illness in people can result in a pandemic influenza. Influenza A viruses are divided into subtypes based on two proteins on the surface of the virus: hemagglutinin (H) and neuraminidase (N) and are constantly changing through a process called „antigenic drift“. Influenza B viruses naturally infect humans and seals. In comparison to influenza A viruses, influenza B viruses generally change more slowly. Influenza viruses are constantly changing through a process called „antigenic drift“. Influenza B viruses are only known to infect humans and seals. AmpliSens® Influenza virus A/B-FRT PCR kit is an in vitro nucleic acid amplification test for qualitative detection of RNA of Influenza virus A and Influenza virus В in biological material (nasopharyngeal and oropharyngeal swabs; sputum; aspirate of trachea; bronchoalveolar lavage, bronchial washing fluid, autopsy material, viral culture) using real- time hybridization-fluorescence detection of amplified products.
