Detection of RNA of the nucleocapsid protein gene of hMPV A and hMPV B.

Background: Human metapneumovirus (hMPV) is an enveloped negative single-stranded RNA virus (ss (-)RNA) of the family Paramyxoviridae. It was isolated for the first time in 2001. HMPV is present as two genetic lineages, hMPV A and hMPV B. Human metapneumovirus causes upper and lower respiratory tract infections, symptoms very similar to respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). Human metapneumovirus has a worldwide distribution and it is one of the most common causes of lower respiratory infection in young children. Reinfections appear to be common. Co-infection of human metapneumovirus with influenza virus or RSV can occur.

Description: ViroReal® Kit Metapneumovirus uses RT real-time PCR for the detection of the nucleocapsid protein gene of human metapneumovirus (hMPV) strains lineages hMPV A and hMPV B. Our carefully designed primers and probe ensure highest sensitivity and specificity. The kit consists of an assay mix for the detection of the pathogen as well as a positive control and an internal positive control (IPC). Reverse transcription and PCR can be performed in one reaction well.
