IVD Test Reagent/Kits, Molecular Assay, Infection, Virus, Influenza A, RNA
Definition : Molecular assay reagents intended to identify Influenza virus type A, a single-stranded RNA virus of the family Orthomyxoviridae, by detecting the ribonucleic acid (RNA) 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. The subtypes of influenza known to affect humans are H1N1, H1N2, and H3N2; other subtypes such as H5 and H7 (i.e., avian influenza) affect birds and may affect humans.
