Real Time PCR Detection Kit Swine influenza A virus (H1N1, H3N2 and H1N2)

Background:Swine influenza A virus (H1N1, H3N2 and H1N2) detection by using qPCR.
Influenza A viruses are negative-sense, single-stranded, segmented RNA viruses belonging to the family Orthomyxoviridae. There are different subtypes of influenza A known to affect swine, but the three common strains are H1N1, H1N2 and H3N2. Swine influenza A virus is responsible for swine influenza, also called pig influenza, swine flu, hog flu and pig flu. Swine influenza virus is common throughout pig populations worldwide. In pigs, influenza infection produces fever, lethargy, sneezing, coughing, difficulty breathing and decreased appetite. In some cases, the infection can cause abortion. Although mortality is usually low (1–4%), the virus can produce weight loss and poor growth, causing economic loss to farmers. Despite the possibility of transmission of the virus from pigs to humans, is not common and does not represent a risk for human health.
