Avian influenza A test

Avian influenza A test: An avian influenza A test is an immunoassay used to identify influenza virus A subtype H5N1 (avian flu) from a human nose or throat swab (nasopharyngeal sample). The assay detects the presence of a specific protein made from this virus subtype. Note that influenza H5N1 is transmitted from bird to bird, and only rarely transmitted to humans that work closely with poultry. Human-to-human transmission is also very rare.
