This product is suitable for the qualitative detection of COVID-19 / Influenza A / Influenza B in Sputum. It provides an aid in the diagnosis of infection with the above viruses.
The novel coronaviruses belong to the β genus. COVID-19 is an acute respiratory infectious disease. People are generally susceptible. Currently, the patients infected by the novel coronavirus are the main source of infection; asymptomatic infected people can also be an infectious source. Based on the current epidemiological investigation, the incubation period is 1 to 14 days, mostly 3 to 7 days. The main manifestations include fever, fatigue and dry cough. Nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat, myalgia and diarrhea are found in a few cases.
Influenza viruses (IFV) are the pathogens that cause influenza. Influenza is an acute respiratory infection caused by influenza A, B, and C viruses, which is highly contagious and spread. Fast, short incubation period, high incidence. Influenza A virus often appears in an epidemic form, which can cause a worldwide influenza pandemic. It is widely distributed in animals, and can also cause influenza epidemics and cause a large number of animal deaths in animals. Influenza B virus often causes local outbreaks and does not cause a worldwide pandemic of influenza. Influenza C viruses mainly appear in scattered form, mainly affecting infants and young children, and generally do not cause epidemics. Therefore, it has relatively large clinical significance for the detection of influenza A and B viruses.
