IVD Test Reagent/Kits, Molecular Assay, Infection, Virus, Influenza A, Avian Subtype, RNA
Definition : Molecular assay reagents intended to identify subtypes of Influenza virus type A (single-stranded RNA viruses of the family Orthomyxoviridae) that affect birds, by detecting the ribonucleic acid (RNA) of the target virus. Influenza A virus subtypes that cause avian influenza usually include the surface glycoproteins H5 or H7 (i.e., subtypes H5N1 and H7N2); these viruses may occasionally cause human influenza, a disease characterized by sudden onset of high fever, myalgia, headache, severe malaise, nonproductive cough, sore throat, and rhinitis.
