80587-9Human metapneumovirus A+B L+N genes [Presence] in Nasopharynx by NAA with probe detectionActive

Term Description

Detection of nucleic acid sequences in the human metapneumovirus (hMPV) A polymerase/large protein (L) gene and hMPV B nucleoprotein (N) gene by PCR-based methods. This test does not differentiate between the mMPV A and B species. This term was created for, but not limited in use to, the Verigene® Respiratory Pathogens Flex Nucleic Acid Test (RP Flex), a multiplexed, qualitative test for the detection and identification of multiple viral and bacterial genetic virulence markers from nasopharyngeal swab specimens.

Part Description

LP206580-5   Human metapneumovirus A+B L+N genes
Human metapneumovirus (hMPV) is a Paramyxoviridae family virus that causes upper and lower respiratory tract infections in the very young, elderly and those with compromised immune systems. hMPV can vary in its size, shape and staining properties, and shares similar structure with avian pneumovirus (aMPV) and human respiratory syncytial virus (hRSV). Typically, molecular testing methods, like reverse transcriptase PCR (RT-PCR), are used to detect hMPV. hMPV is thought to be responsible for about 5% to 10% of pediatric hospitalizations of those suffering from acute respiratory tract infection.
