H5N1 Detection Kits

Influenza virus infection of birds, humans and other animals is a major public health problem worldwide. Influenza viruses are classified as either type A, B or C based on differences in their nucleoproteins and matrix proteins. The type A viruses are the most virulent human pathogens among the three influenza types and cause the most severe disease and epidemics. The different types can be further classified into subtypes based on antigenic differences in two surface glycoproteins; hemagglutinin and neuroamidase. All known subtypes of influenza A can be found in birds (H1-H16, N1-N9), while a limited number of the subtypes have been found in humans (H1-H3, N1 and N2). However, over the past few years, various subtypes of Influenza A viruses, including H5N1, have been reported to infect humans (WHO, 2006). In addition, the coexistence of human influenza viruses and avian influenza viruses may provide an opportunity for genetic material to be exchanged between these viruses. This could potentially create a new virulent influenza strain that is easily transmissible and lethal to humans (Food Safety Research Information Office, 2006). Thus, there is the need for sensitive diagnostic tests to allow for the rapid and early detection of these H5 influenza virus infections, to help reduce the risk of epidemics or pandemics in both animals and humans.

There are 2 kits available for the detection of H5N1:

H5N1 End-Point PCR/RT-PCR Kit, 24 reactions
  • Ready to use format, including Master Mix for the target and PCR control to monitor for PCR inhibition and validate the quality
  • Specific Primer mix for the pathogen/virus/viroid of interest
  • Positive control and a negative control to confirm the integrity of the kit reagents
  • Loading dye and a DNA ladder to facilitate qualitative analysis of the results on an agarose gel
H5N1 End-Point PCR/RT-PCR Primer Set and Controls, 100 reactions
  • Specific Primer mix and Positive Control for the pathogen/virus/viroid of interest
  • Nuclease-free water
  • Can be used together with Norgen’s PCR/RT-PCR Master Mix (#28007/#28113)or customer supplied master mix

For research use only and NOT intended for in vitro diagnostics.

Storage Conditions and Product Stability
All kit components should be store at -20°C upon arrival. Repeated thawing and freezing (> 2 x) of the Master Mix, Control Master Mix and Positive Control should be avoided, as this may affect the performance of the assay. If the reagents are to be used only intermittently, they should be frozen in aliquots. All reagents can be stored for 1 year at -20°C without showing any reduction in performance.
