IVD Test Reagent/Kits, Molecular Assay, Infection, Virus, Influenza A
Definition : Molecular assay reagents intended to identify Influenza virus type A, a single-stranded RNA virus of the family Orthomyxoviridae, by detecting the nucleic acid of the target virus. Influenza A virus may cause human influenza, a disease characterized by sudden onset of high fever, myalgia, headaches, severe malaise, nonproductive cough, sore throat, and rhinitis. Subtypes of Influenza virus that known to affect humans are H1N1, H1N2, and H3N2; other subtypes such as H5N1 and H7N2 (i.e., avian influenza) affect birds and may affect humans.
