Influenza B

Influenza B   How could we detect Influenza B? Highly sensitive and special enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for the detection of influenza B nucleoprotein-specific antibodies in serum which may be used for the detection of influenza B NP antibodies in human serum as well as experimental animals.Influenza B Nucleoprotein Antigen Detection ELISA also incorporates proprietary diluents which are made to avoid the progression of nonspecific signal derived from complex sample matrix effects or the nonspecific adsorption of reactive test components leading to both high sensitivity and specificity. The test kit can be found in a conventional photometric format that uses…

Influenza A virus

Influenza A virus, typically encountered more frequently than types B and C, and associated with the majority of serious epidemics, can be further subdivided into strains or subtypes based on antigenic differences in the external hemagglutinin proteins (H1-H16) and neuraminidase proteins (N1-N9). An open reading frame or ORF is a portion of an organism's genome which contains a sequence of bases that could potentially encode a protein. In a gene, ORFs are located between the start-code sequence (initiation codon) and the stop-code sequence (termination codon). Historically, human influenza virus infections have been associated with H1N1, H2N2, and H3N2 subtypes of…
