Rapid Molecular Detection and Differentiation of Influenza Viruses A and B Caitlin C. Otto1, Samuel E. Kaplan1, Jeffrey Stiles1, Albina Mikhlina1, Cindy Lee1, N. Esther Babady1, Yi-Wei Tang1 1Department of Laboratory Medicine, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center We describe a rapid, molecular-based Influenza A and B assay. The Influenza assay detects each target within 15 min by employing isothermal amplification with influenza-specific primers followed by target detection with molecular beacon probes. The Influenza A and B assay is user-friendly and required minimal hands-on time to perform.
