PCR detection of the most common viral pneumonia pathogens

AID CAP vir PCR kit – detection of the most common viral CAP pathogens

Differentiation of Influenza A+B, Parainfluenza 1-3, RSV, hMPV and adenoviruses

Community Acquired Pneumonia (CAP) means a pneumonia of a immune competent patient. Infection occurs in natural private or working environment in contrast to clinical environment.

Besides several bacterial pathogens, viruses such as

Influenza Virus A und B,
Parainfluenza 1-3,
Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV),
Humane Metapneumoviruses and Adenoviruses

are a major cause of CAP.

Especially in elderly and little children these viruses can cause not only pneumonia but also diseases like croup, bronchitis and bronchiolitis.

AID CAP Vir Kit enables detection of most common viral pathogens of respiratory infections with a modular multiplex PCR.




  • Detection of 8 most frequent viral CAP Pathogens
