Rapid influenza diagnostics are rapid immunoassays to detect influenza A and B viral nucleoprotein antigens in respiratory samples. The influenza virus is a fatal respiratory pathogen that causes respiratory disorders, flu-like symptoms, fatigue and cough. The influenza virus is of 4 types Influenza A, B, C and D, out of which influenza A and B cause seasonal epidemic infections. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), over 3-5 million were infected by influenza and over 2.9 million to 6.5 million deaths reported, globally. Rapid influenza diagnostics bears edge over other immunoassays by providing rapid results and faster diagnosis. The global rapid influenza diagnostics market is poised to grow lucratively with the rising prevalence of influenza infections, active R&D investments for novel rapid influenza diagnostics development and high demand for faster diagnosis. Coronavirus has propelled the global market of rapid influenza diagnostics. Since the coronavirus and influenza belong to the same class of respiratory virus and with similar symptoms, this has pushed the use of rapid influenza diagnostics applicable for massive scale to curb the spread of coronavirus.
