New Method of Identifying Influenza Viruses Found

Pyongyang, July 14 (KCNA) — Researchers of the Central Hygienic Prevention Centre in the DPRK have recently succeeded in developing a new method for identification of influenza viruses by a new cell strain.

They also established systems for cold-storage of the cell strain at ultra low temperature and for managing and applying cells.

The virus identification rate of the new method is 4-5 times that of the widely used one. It thus saves a large quantity of materials, manpower and time while ensuring the scientific accuracy.

The new influenza virus identification method is being extensively introduced in the public health and veterinary fields.
