Abstract ´╗┐Abstract: Timely implementation of antiviral treatment and other public health based responses are dependent on accurate and rapid diagnosis of the novel pandemic influenza A(HINl) strain. In this study we developed a duplex real-time PCR (RT-PCR) (dFLU- TM) assay for the simultaneous detection of a broad range of influenza A subtypes and specific detection of the novel HINI 2009 pandemic strain. The assay was compared to the combined results of two previously described monoplex R T - PCR assays using 183 clinical samples and 10 seasonal influenza A isolates. Overall, the results showed that the dFLU-TM RT-PCR method is suitable for detection of influenza A, including the novel HINI pandemic strain, in clinical samples.
