  Influenza (commonly known as ‘flu’) is a highly contagious, acute viral infection of the respiratory tract .It is a communicable disease easily transmitted through the coughing and sneezing of aerosolized droplets containing live virus.Influenza outbreaks occur each year during the fall and winter months. Type A viruses are typically more prevalent than type B viruses and are associated with most serious influenza epidemics, while type B infections are usually milder. The gold standard of laboratory diagnosis is 14-day cell culture with one of a variety of cell lines that can support the growth of influenza virus.Cell culture has limited clinical utility, as results are obtained too late in the clinical course for effective patient intervention. Reverse Transcriptase Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) is a newer method that is generally more sensitive than culture with improved detection rates over culture of 2-23%. However, RT-PCR is expensive, complex and must be performed in specialized laboratories. The Influenza A+B Rapid Test strip (Swab/Nasal Aspirate) qualitatively detects the presence of Influenza A and/or Influenza B antigen in nasal swab or throat swab or nasal aspirate specimens ,providing results within 15 minutes. The test uses antibodies specific for Influenza A and Influenza B to selectively detect Influenza A and Influenza B antigen in nasal swab, throat swab or nasal aspirate specimens.

6.What does rapid testing reveal? Rapid tests tell us if a patient is actively infected. They detect the presence of target from patient specimens. Results are produced quickly, generally within 15 minutes, and can be performed near the place and time of patient care (as opposed to a separate laboratory setting). If the target object is detected, it indicates that immediate action should be taken. 7.Is there an accuracy concern with rapid testing? These tests are generally less sensitive than molecular tests, and it's important to be aware that there is an increased possibility of false negatives with rapid testing. They are most accurate when viral loads are high (within the first couple of symptomatic days), and your healthcare provider may order a molecular test to confirm the results of your rapid test if it indicates that you are negative. If your rapid test is positive, there is no need to confirm with a molecular test, as these tests are highly specific.
