    ..The emergence in humans of pandemic (H1N1) 2009 (pH1N1) with similarities to swine influenza viruses (SIVs) caused much concern for both human and animal health as potential for interspecies transmission was initially unknown...

    J Clin Microbiol 51:547-56. 2013
    ..The AB assay had a 1.6-times-shorter PCR time. In summary, serum and blood swabs had the best performance with highest detection rates and agreement between assays and the shortest turnaround times...

    Emerg Infect Dis 16:534-7. 2010
    ..In 2009, pandemic (H1N1) 2009 infection in a domestic cat from Iowa was diagnosed by a novel PCR assay that distinguishes between Eurasian and North American pandemic (H1N1) 2009 virus matrix genes. Human-to-cat transmission is presumed...

    Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory, College of Veterinary Medicine, Iowa State University, 1600 South 16th Street, Ames, IA 50011 1250, USA
    J Vet Diagn Invest 23:248-53. 2011
    ..The results suggest that further optimization of PCR assays for porcine oral fluids is needed and that laboratories should not assume that methods optimized for detection of virus in serum will perform equally with porcine oral fluids...
