Solana Respiratory Viral Panel

The Solana Respiratory Viral Panel (RVP) combines two Solana respiratory assays, Solana Influenza A+B and Solana RSV + hMPV, to create a focused respiratory viral panel to detect and differentiate all four respiratory viruses (influenza A, influenza B, respiratory syncytial virus and human metapneumovirus) from a single patient sample. Test up to 6 patients at a time in just 45 minutes using Solana’s high-volume throughput.

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

The process buffer is universal between both kits, which allows testing for all four conditions using a single patient sample. Testing is done using two major steps: (1) specimen preparation, and (2) amplification and detection of target sequences specific to RSV, hMPV, 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, printed, and are capable of being sent to the LIS and exported through one of Solana’s five USB ports. Manage de-identified data, in near real time for improved operational efficiencies, using the Power of Virena®, which is integrated directly into Solana.

Features & Benefits
