Research Tools for Influenza Detection

Influenza detection requires several distinct steps, including isolation of the viral RNA, reverse transcription of the viral RNA to cDNA, and realtime PCR-based amplification and detection of known subtype sequences. Life Technologies supplies high-performing products for each step in this process. 

RNA isolation and amplification reagents have been optimized for use on Applied Biosystems instrumentation; superior instrument quality and on-site certified Field Service Engineer Support minimize down time and help ensure that a maximum number of samples can be processed per day.  Real-time PCR-based detection of known influenza strains using sequence-specific dual-labeled (TaqMan® chemistry) probes is recommended by the CDC for more accurate results compared to antibody-based methods. Life Technologies offers a portfolio of Research Use Only real-time PCR products for every step of the influenza detection process.
