Reagents, Molecular Assay, Infection, Virus, Parainfluenza
Definition : Molecular assay reagents intended to identify parainfluenza viruses, a group of single-stranded RNA viruses of the family Paramyxoviridae, by detecting specific nucleic-acid information of the target viruses. Parainfluenza viruses affecting humans are classified into the genera Paramyxovirus (including human Parainfluenza virus types 1 and 3) and Rubulavirus (including human Parainfluenza virus types 2 and 4). These viruses are the etiologic agent of parainfluenza and several upper respiratory tract infections (e.g., bronchitis, pneumonia) of varying severity. Dedicated molecular assay reagents are available to identify specific types of Parainfluenza viruses.
