Clinical Microbiology

The IMAGEN™ Respiratory Screen is a qualitative indirect immunofluorescence test for the presumptive detection of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), influenza A and B virus, Parainfluenza virus 1, 2 and 3 and adenovirus in respiratory specimens (nasopharyngeal aspirates) and in cell cultures. The assay cannot differentiate between the viruses. Individual viruses should be further identified and confirmed using monospecific FITC labelled monoclonal antibody reagents, such as the IMAGEN range, or other methods. The direct respiratory specimen results must be confirmed by cell culture.
