Solana® Influenza A+B Assay

The Solana Influenza A+B Assay is a rapid qualitative in vitro  diagnostic test for the detection and differentiation of influenza A and influenza B viral RNA in nasal and nasopharyngeal swabs from patients with signs and symptoms of respiratory infection.

The Solana Influenza A+B assay amplifies and detects viral RNA present in transport media containing nasopharyngeal or nasal swab specimens obtained from symptomatic patients.

The assay consists of two major steps: (1) specimen preparation, and (2) amplification and detection of target sequences specific to influenza A and/or influenza B using isothermal Reverse Transcriptase – Helicase–Dependent Amplification (RT–HDA) in the presence of target–specific fluorescence probes which is performed in the Solana instrument.

Results are displayed on the touchscreen, can be saved to the instrument, can be printed, and are capable of being sent to the LIS and exported through one of Solana’s five USB ports. Solana Influenza A+B assay is also supported by the power of Virena® System.
