Major disease outbreaks are associated with the circulation of viruses like the influenza virus Type A and B in the human population. Infection with Influenza B virus is usually milder than infection with Influenza A virus, but both agents are major causes of upper respiratory illness. Clinical research in understanding and treating influenza starts with isolation of the RNA. The TruTip Viral RNA/DNA Kits offer a competitive solution for fast and efficient isolation of viral RNA and DNA from the most challenging clinical sample types to deliver inhibitor-free, PCR-ready RNA in just 7 minutes, following a pre-treatment lysis step.
