The human Metapneumovirus (hMPV) is a ssRNA virus belonging to the the family Paramyxoviridae. Together with Rhinovirus (HRV) and Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSVhMPV is one of the most common respiratory viruses worldwide and appears seasonal like influenza. The virus can cause upper and lower respiratory tract infections in people of all ages. Patients with acute lower respiratory tract infections show symptoms ranging from wheeze to pneumonia or bronchiolitis, while upper respiratory tract infections are more typical for colds.


1 Vial red cap 96 reactions MPV (lyophilized)
1 Vial black cap Positive Control, Cp-value ~ 30

Additional Reagents required
LightCycler® Multiplex RNA Virus Master

A 151 bp long fragment from the viral fusion protein gene is amplified with specific primers and detected with a JOE labeled hydrolysis probe (580 channel).

This assay detects 10 genome equivalent copies or less per reaction (in vitro transcripted RNA).

Sample Material and Extraction
Typical clinical samples are nasopharyngeal, oropharyngeal or throat swabs, tracheal aspirates or bronchoalveolar lavage. See ModularDx Document Extraction Protocols.
