What is influenza A & B

The two most common types of influenza are influenza A & B. Influenza (commonly known as the ‘flu’) is a highly contagious, acute viral infection of the respiratory tract. The disease is easily transmitted through coughing and sneezing from aerosolized droplets containing the live virus. The Rapid Response® Influenza A+B Test Cassette offers fast and accurate influenza diagnosis providing results in under 10 minutes.

About the Flu test

The Rapid Response® Influenza A+B Test Cassette is an immunoassay that detects for the presence of Influenza A and Influenza B nucleoprotein antigens in respiratory specimens. This test can quickly differentiate between Flu AB viral infections from patients with Influenza symptoms. If the test is positive for either Influenza A (Flu A) OR Influenza B (Flu B), the tested individual has the flu. What’s included
  • Detailed and easy to follow directions
  • All materials for sample collection

The test detects if there is an infection and does not confirm immunity or detect antibodies. This test detects for both Influzena A and Influenza B. The test does not detect Influenza C virus.
Influenza A infection is more common than Influenza B. Type B flu is only found in humans while type A flu can infect both humans and animals. Both types cause similar symptoms.
This test uses a nasal swab, nasopharyngeal/nasal swab, throat swab, or nasal aspirate samples.
No. This test is for laboratory in vitro diagnostic use only.
Respiratory specimens should be collected within 3 to 4 days of symptoms onset for maximal detection.
Yes. The Rapid Response® Influenza AB + COVID-19 Antigen – 3 in 1 Test helps healthcare providers at the point of care to quickly detect and differentiate respiratory infections from any of the three common viruses. The test aids in providing answers for the best course for treatment.
Common Covid, Influenza A and Influenza B symptoms are fever, chills, coughs, and shortness of breath.
