Description: This PCR assay will detect most if not all influenza virus types currently circulating in most species, including 2009 H1N1 and the 2015 Canine H3N8. This assay does not specifically identify the influenza H and N types. That testing can potentially be requested on positive samples if unusual outbreaks or cross-species transmission is suspected.
