Comparison of two real-time RT-PCR-based systems for the detection and typing of the pandemic influenza A virus, 29

, : Comparison of two real-time RT-PCR-based systems for the detection and typing of the pandemic influenza A virus, 29.

During the 29 pandemic the Virology laboratory of L. Spallanzani, Rome, Italy, adopted a real-time RT-PCR developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Atlanta, Georgia to diagnose pandemic influenza A/H1N1 (H1N1pdm). A new multiplex real-time RT-PCR distributed by Astra Diagnostics, coupled with the extraction system developed and commercialized by Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics (referred to as the RealStar system), was tested for the ability to detect and type influenza A in clinical samples, with particular emphasis on influenza A-positive samples untyped by the CDC method. Seventy-six nasopharyngeal swabs, resulting by the CDC method H1N1pdm (n=7), H3N2 (n=3), and.
