Purified virions. Does not cross react with influenza A virus, Parainfluenza virus types 1 to 3, Respiratory Syncytial virus or Adenovirus. Negative against monkey kidney cells by indirect immunofluorescence.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/10 - 1/50.
Direct FA staining of target antigens in a permissive tissue culture system. Working dilution must be determined by the user for each specific application but a starting range of 1:10 to 1:50 is suggested. Acetone fixation of the antigen source is recommended prior to staining. Negative against monkey kidney cells by indirect immunofluorescence.
Influenza A and B are the two types of influenza viruses that cause epidemic human disease. Influenza B viruses currently circulating are divided into two antigenically and genetically distinct groups: the Victoria and Yamagata lineages.
