Description of the QUIDEL Influenza A+B Test
QuickVue Influenza A+B Test:
Quidel’s CLIA-waived QuickVue® Influenza A+B test provides you with differential A or B test results allowing you to test and treat in just one visit. Prompt type-specific diagnosis enables a choice of antiviral therapy, helps avoid the overuse of antibiotics, and prevents healthcare costs related to unnecessary testing and treatment.
The QuickVue Influenza A+B test has also been shown to detect cultured avian influenza viruses, including avian Influenza A subtype H5N1 virus; however, as with other rapid tests for influenza, the ability of the QuickVue Influenza A+B test to detect influenza Type A in patients infected with H5N1 has not been established. The QuickVue Influenza A+B test is CLIA waived, sensitive and specific, giving you the results you need. Right. Now.
