Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The World Health Organization (WHO), on March 11, 2020, declared that COVID-19 could be a pandemic. Anyone can get sick with COVID-19 and become seriously ill or die at any age.
Influenza (Flu) is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses that infect the nose, throat, and lungs. There are three types of influenza viruses: A, B, and C. FluA and FluB are the most common viruses that routinely spread in people (human influenza viruses) and are responsible for seasonal flu epidemics each year.
Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a common respiratory virus that usually causes mild, cold-like symptoms. RSV is the most common cause of bronchiolitis (inflammation of the small airways in the lung) and pneumonia (infection of the lungs) in children younger than one year of age.
SARS-CoV-2, influenza, and RSV are all contagious viruses that cause respiratory illnesses. The three viruses are spread from person to person through droplets and present similar symptoms, including cough, fever, and congestion. RSV and the flu can be life-threatening in young children. Multiplex assay diagnosis to distinguish the virus are beneficial to minimizing the spread and making different approaches if treatment is needed.
The Bioperfectus Allfastra SARS-CoV-2/FluA/FluB/RSV Real Time PCR Kit is an in vitro diagnostic test, based on real-time PCR technology, for the detection and differentiation of RNA from the SARS-CoV-2, influenza A (FluA), influenza B (FluB) virus and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). Specimens can be obtained from human nasopharyngeal (NP) swabs, oropharyngeal (OP) swabs, and sputum.
