Elderly and compromised individuals are especially at risk of developing severe illness and complications.

How Are Influenza A and B Different?

Learn how to protect yourself with an annual flu vaccine. About Abbott is a world leader in rapid diagnostics at the point of care, with a focus on cardio metabolic disease, infectious disease and toxicology. Routine diagnosis of seven respiratory viruses and Mycoplasma pneumoniae by enzyme immunoassay. Abstract Since influenza viruses can cause severe illness, timely diagnosis is important for an adequate intervention.

Besides being rapid, inflluenza method also has the advantage of a standardized protocol that can be applied easily to other respiratory viruses; the TaqMan PCR can be performed under uniform amplification conditions, thereby allowing the use of target-specific primer and probe sets.

This can lead to a decrease in the effectiveness of the vaccine. The flu can be life-threatening.

Influenza types A, B, and C can cause illness in humans. WHO influneza on the use of rapid testing for influenza diagnosis. All of the influenza virus strains but none of the other respiratory viruses were detected. In fact, we were able to detect as little as 0.

The sensitivity of the multiplex assay was determined in two ways: This study describes a rapid, sensitive detection method that can be easily applied to routine diagnosis. While most confirmed infections during flu season will be influenza A, the occurrence of influenza B infections can increase late in the flu season. Alternative diagnostic techniques, such as viral antigen detection immunofluorescence and enzyme immunoassay techniques and shell vial culturing, on the other hand, provide results much more quickly but generally are less sensitive than conventional cell culturing 4111518 Influenza virus A and B reference strains and isolates and reference strains of rhinovirus 1A, rhinovirus 14, respiratory syncytial virus Long straincoronavirus OC43, and coronavirus E were kindly provided by inlfuenza Laboratory influenzs Virology, National Institute of Public Health influeenza the Environment Bilthoven, The Netherlands.


A standard curve could be generated with the multiplex TaqMan PCR, creating a quantitative format for the assay. The flu shot has been found to be safe for most people.

The flu vaccine, which typically comes as a shot or nasal spray, can reduce your chances of getting the flu by as much as 60 percent. In recent studies, typing and subtyping of influenza virus strains have been performed using multiplex RT-PCR 516 Discover a variety of expert viewpoints on new innovations, insights, and impacts that are shaping the future of diagnostics around the world.

This happened in the to flu season. Here, we describe a multiplex TaqMan-based real-time PCR assay for the rapid and simultaneous detection of influenza viruses influenza virus A, influenza virus B, or both in clinical specimens.

Based on your current location, the content on this page may not be relevant for your country.

Briand H, et Al. This type of analysis, however, is time-consuming, either because sub type-specific PCRs need to be performed or because the post-PCR analysis is complicated. The method can generate results within 4 to 5 h and does not require any post-PCR processing 910 Routine diagnostic logistics were used for sample transportation from the general practices to the laboratory bb well as for sample transportation from the outpatient clinic to the laboratory.

Some influenza A subtypes can cause more severe disease than others. We are pleased to provide you with materials to support your IQCPs. Toxicology Broad t and alcohol testing portfolio includes rapid analyzer-based tests, visual-read screening devices, laboratory tests, and immunoassay reagents.

Our type-specific probes, for example, can be labeled with different fluorogenic dyes to distinguish between influenza viruses A and B, because the ABI Prism sequence detection system has the capability of detecting multiple dyes with distinct emission wavelengths Specifications Highly accurate results in 15 minutes Specimen types: Sometimes the circulating influenza viruses can mutate from one season to the next.


Virus isolation and growth.

Influenza A and B co-infection: a case-control study and review of the literature.

Virus isolation via cell culturing, shell vial culturing, antigen detection, and serologic analysis are the methods currently used for the laboratory diagnosis of influenza viruses. Both influenza A and B are extremely contagious and cause the same type of illness.

Open in a separate window. The samples from the outpatient clinic were sent to the laboratory within 2 h. Influenza C is regarded as the least serious of the three types that humans can contract. Some people may still have a cough or feel fatigued after two weeks.

Simultaneous Detection of Influenza Viruses A and B Using Real-Time Quantitative PCR

Broad drug and alcohol testing portfolio includes rapid analyzer-based tests, visual-read screening devices, laboratory tests, and immunoassay reagents.

Real-time quantitative PCR for the detection of minimal residual disease influemza acute lymphoblastic leukemia using junctional region influenzz TaqMan probes. Getting Straight to the Point! There are 18 different HA subtypes and 11 different NA subtypes. Rapid on-site detection of Group A Streptococcus infection. Abbott products give providers, physicians and patients access to the right information at the right time.

What makes a carb good and what makes it bad? But even when this happens, the vaccine still offers some protection.

People who contract either type can spread the virus to others from up to six feet away when they cough or sneeze. Primers and probes were selected from highly conserved influehza of the matrix protein gene of influenza virus A and the hemagglutinin gene segment of influenza virus B.

These subtypes are based off of the combination of two proteins on the viral surface:
