Artron FLU A&B Antigen test is an antigen-capture immunochromatographic assay, detecting the presence of Influenza A and B nucleoproteins antigen in nasal swab, nasopharyngeal swab, and nasopharyngeal aspirate/wash samples.
Influenza is a highly contagious acute viral infection of the respiratory tract. It is a communicable disease easily transmitted from person to person through aerosol droplets excreted when sneezing and coughing. Common symptoms include high fever, chills, headache, cough, sore throat and malaise. The type A influenza virus is more prevalent and is the primary pathogen associated with serious epidemics. The type B virus causes a disease that is generally not as severe as that caused by the type A virus. Both type A and B viruses can circulate simultaneously, but usually one type is dominant during a given season.
Early differential diagnosis of influenza type A or type B can allow for proper treatment with appropriate antiviral therapy while reducing the incidence of inappropriate treatment with antibiotics.
Artron Flu A& B is a rapid immunoassay to be used as an aid for the differential diagnosis of influenza type A and type B.
