Avian Influenza Virus (AIV)
Rapid CDIATM AIV kits are intended to detect the avian influenza virus in the aid of diagnositcs and protection.
Avian influenza (AI) is an infectious viral disease of birds (especially wild water fowl such as ducks and geese), often causing no apparent signs of illness. AI viruses can sometimes spread to domestic poultry and cause large-scale outbreaks of serious disease. Some of these AI viruses have also been reported to cross the species barrier and cause disease or subclinical infections in humans and other mammals.
