Swine Influenza A virus H1N1 Diagnostic Kit (RNA PCR-Fluorescence Probing)

The recent outbreak of the swine influenza virus H1N1 subtype has led to a need for rapid detection and accurate surveillance of the spread. To address this global demand Aurora Instruments Ltd. is now offering a diagnostic test kit to detect this novel H1N1 virus. The kit is designed for in vitro quantification of influenza A swine flu subtype H1N1. Multiple sequence alignments and validation of this kit against a positive H1N1 patient sample ensure that this is an ideal kit for detection. The kit contains reagents for nucleic acid extraction, realtime-PCR detection and quality control.

Catalogue #: ABI - H1N1 Swine KK2009 Kit

Principles of the test

The kit has specifically designed primers as well as a composite fluorescent probe thereby allowing utilization of realtime fluorescent PCR. The genetic sequence of the influenza A /H1N1 can be targeted through realtime PCR amplification.

Key Features

The kit contains ready-to-use reagents, offers fast real-time detection and provides excellent sensitivity and high specificity. It is also optimized for use in automated liquid handling workstations. By combining this kit with Aurora’s VERSA™ workstations, laboratories can fully automate the amplification process thereby reducing cost and operator error, while increasing efficiency.

Product Features:

  • 24 tests per kit (25µL reaction)
  • Rapid detection of Pandemic Influenza H1N1 (2009)
  • Highly specific detection profile
  • High priming efficiency
  • Broad dynamic detection range (>6 logs)
  • Sensitive to <1000 copies of target, and can detect as low as 5 copies of the RNA in the sample
  • Accurate controls to confirm findings
  • Colour coded reagent vials
