Clinical Microbiology

IMAGEN™ Parainfluenza virus test kits are qualitative direct immunofluorescence tests for the detection and differentiation of Parainfluenza virus types 1, 2 and 3 directly in nasopharyngeal aspirates or in cell cultures. The kits are available in two formats: IMAGEN Parainfluenza virus Group (Types 1, 2 and 3) (Code No. K6103) for the detection and confirmation of the presence of Parainfluenza virus antigens directly in nasopharyngeal aspirates and in cell culture preparations. IMAGEN Parainfluenza virus Types 1, 2 and 3 (Code No. K6104) for the detection and differentiation of Parainfluenza virus types 1, 2 and 3 antigens respectively directly in nasopharyngeal aspirates and in cell culture preparations. A negative result obtained following direct staining of nasopharyngeal aspirates should be considered presumptive until confirmed by culture.
