H1N1 announcement

Da An Gene is excited to announce that we have included a Real-Time PCR kit for Influenza A H1N1 to our extensive product catalogue. The H1N1 kit is applicable for most of the commercially available instruments.

 

On May 8th, 2009, DAAN Gene collaborated with Department of Microbiology at University of Hong Kong to evaluate our Real Time PCR kit for Influenza A H1N1 and Influenza A. The Microbiologists at University of Hong Kong extracted Influenza A H1N1 viral nucleic acid from positive H1N1 patient sample detected in Hong Kong, China for the evaluation. The results of the evaluation were:

 

1. The positive controls for both kits were tested positive.

2. The positive quantitative reference controls were tested positive with linear standard curves.

3. The Influenza A kit and Influenza A H1N1 kit tested positive for Influenza A nucleic acid from positive patient sample.

4. The isolated and cultured positive sample of Influenza A was tested on both kits; Influenza A kit tested positive, Influenza A H1N1 kit tested positive.

5. The extracted nucleic acid from Human Influenza H1 was tested on both kits; Influenza A kit tested positive, Influenza A H1N1 kit tested negative.

6. The extracted nucleic acid from Human Influenza H3 was tested on both kits; the Influenza A kit tested positive, the Influenza A H1N1 kit tested negative.
