In humans, Influenza A and B virus infections can cause acute and occasionally severe respiratory disease in immunocompetent and immunocompromised individuals. Influenza A and B viral infections occur in annual epidemics often with rapid onset and spread of infection. Periodically, as a result of the on-going evolution of Influenza A viruses, epidemics of disease occur which can have a significant impact on world health1, 2.
Use IMAGEN Influenza Virus A and B Kit for the detection and differentiation of Influenza A and B virus in clinical specimens or for the confirmation and differentiation of Influenza virus A and B in cell cultures.
Influenza A and B viruses are members of the genus Influenza virus classified within the family Orthomyxoviridae3. Influenza A virus strains infect a variety of animals including humans, horses, pigs, sea mammals and birds whereas Influenza B virus strains appear to infect humans only4.
The rapid laboratory diagnosis of Influenza A or B virus infections plays an important role in patient management, influencing the use of antiviral therapy and enabling effective management and control of outbreaks5, 6.
