Influenza/H5 LC RT-PCR Kit, Qiagen
December 2005
SHARING OPTIONS:

The new artus Influenza/H5 LC RT-PCR Kit from QIAGEN combines a screening test, which detects all influenza A and B viruses including the avian influenza virus (influenza A virus subtype H5N1) with a highly specific detection of specific nucleic acids (RNA) of the H5 subtype of avian flu viruses. The detection of this subtype in humans strongly suggests infection with H5N1. The assay was developed taking into account the RNA sequences of all H5N1 strains known to date. The artus Influenza/H5 LC RT-PCR Kit and artus Influenza LC RT-PCR Kit are based on real-time PCR technology. Both kits have been developed for the detection of influenza viruses in human sputum as well as throat and nasal swabs using the LightCycler Instrument. In contrast to classical detection procedures for influenza viruses which require 7 to 14 days, the specific and highly sensitive QIAGEN kits reduce the time to detection of influenza viruses or the avian flu (H5N1) virus to less than two hours. The shorter analysis time in combination with the high sensitivity and reliability, allows researchers to recognize infections with the influenza virus faster. This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
