Intended Use

The Accula™ Flu A/B Test performed on the Accula™ Dock is a molecular in vitro diagnostic test utilizing polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and lateral flow technologies for the qualitative, visual detection and differentiation of influenza A and influenza B viral RNA. The Accula™ Flu A/Flu B Test uses a nasal swab specimen collected from patient with signs and symptoms of respiratory infection. Accula™ Flu A/Flu B assay is intended as an aid in the diagnosis of influenza infections in conjunction with clinical and epidemiological risk factors. The assay is not intended to detect the presence of influenza C virus.

Negative results do not preclude influenza virus infection and should not be used as the sole basis for treatment or other patient management decisions. Performance characteristics for influenza A were established during the 2016-2017 influenza season. When other influenza viruses are emerging, performance characteristics may vary.

If infection with a novel influenza A virus is suspected based on current clinical and epidemiological screening criteria recommended by public health authorities, specimens should be collected with appropriate infection control precautions for novel virulent influenza viruses and sent to state or local health department for testing. Viral culture should not be attempted in these cases unless a BSL-3+ facility is available to receive and culture specimens.
