Pandemic H3N2pdm11 CDC PCR Kit Guidance
The above comments are from the WHO update on influenza activity. The update notes that the vaccine seed stocks, (sequences released at GISAID August 3) were available and guidance for use of PCR test kit for indirect detection of H3N2pdm11 has been issued.
This kit includes an NP target which cross reacts with H3N2pdm11, as does H3 with seasonal target.
The sequences from A/Iowa/07/2011, A/Iowa/08/2011, A/Iowa/09/2011 are currently available at GISAID and Genbank sequences are being processed and should be accessible shortly (which will activate above links, which have accession numbers).
