Quanta BioSciences qRT-PCR technology recommended in newly published CDC protocol for detection of H7N9 Avian Influenza
Date:4/25/2013

GAITHERSBURG, Md., April 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Quanta BioSciences today announced the CDC Real-Time RT-PCR (rRT-PCR) Protocol LP-152 for Detection and Characterization of Avian A/H7 (Eurasian-lineage) Influenza recommends that public health and other qualified laboratories utilize Quanta's qScript One-Step qRT-PCR Kit, Low ROX (95059-200 and 95059-050).

According to the World Health Organization (WHO) 108 cases of H7N9 influenza have been reported in China, causing severe respiratory illness including 22 deaths, as of April 23. Whether person-to-person transmission of this virus is possible is unclear, but other strains of Avian Influenza A, such as H5N1, have been spread via human-to-human interaction. With the potential threat of pandemic presented by any flu virus that can spread human-to-human, it is imperative that the best technologies are employed to detect and characterize these viruses.

In an effort to make supply of the qScript One-Step qRT-PCR technology available across the globe in reaction to the H7N9 outbreak, Quanta BioSciences has engaged its worldwide distribution network to ensure steady supply.
