Vircell extends its product line and launches new references for Novel Influenza A H1N1 diagnosis

According to CDC (Guidelines for Health Professionals) the recommended methods for the confirmation of suspected cases of novel Influenza A H1N1 are real time PCR and viral culture followed by sequencing.

For those laboratories performing viral culture, shell-vial technique offers the advantages of easy use, reading in 24 hours and minimum equipment required.

From today Vircell offers the following products:
