The D3 Double Duet DFA Respiratory Virus Screening & ID Kit, is intended for the qualitative detection and identification of influenza A, while screening for influenza B virus, adenovirus, and parainfluenza virus types 1, 2 and 3 viral antigens (Reagent 1) and the qualitative detection and identification of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and metapneumovirus (hMPV) (Reagent 2), in nasal and nasopharyngeal swabs and aspirates or in cell culture. The assay detects viral antigens by immunofluorescence using monoclonal antibodies (MAbs), from patients with signs and symptoms of respiratory infection. Two stains, one filter, four rapid results with two fluorescent tags (R-phycoerythrin (R-PE) and fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC)) for optimal laboratory efficiency.

  • Proprietary dual fluorescent technology simplifies workflow
  • Allows for identification of either Influenza A, RSV and hMPV viruses while screening for 5 other respiratory viruses (influenza B, adenovirus, and parainfluenza virus types 1, 2 and 3) in cell culture using a multiplex monoclonal antibody format
  • Results can be read with a single fluorescent filter set for ease of use
