FilmArray® Ebola Control Panel M251

FilmArray® Ebola Control Panel M251

The FilmArray Ebola Control Panel M251 is intended for in vitro use as a quality control to monitor the presumptive detection of Ebola Zaire virus in whole blood specimens when tested by the FilmArray BioThreat-E test on the FilmArray instrument.

The FilmArray BioThreat-E test is performed on the FilmArray instrument to detect RNA from the Ebola Zaire virus in specimens from individuals with signs and symptoms of Ebola virus infection in conjunction with epidemiological risk factors. Ebola virus disease (EVD), formerly known as the Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever (EHF), is a disease in humans caused by four of five viruses in the genus Ebolavirus, from the family Filoviridae. The four viruses are Bundibugyo virus (BDBV), Sudan virus (SUDV), Taï Forest virus (TAFV), and Ebola virus (EBOV, also known as Zaire Ebola virus). The Ebola Zaire virus is the most dangerous of the known EVD-causing viruses and is responsible for the 2014 West Africa Ebola virus outbreak, with the largest number of deaths to date1. As of October 25, 2014, the World Health Organization has reported there are 10,141 confirmed, suspected, and probable cases of EVD in six affected countries (Guinea, Liberia, Mali, Sierra Leone, Spain, and the United States of America) with 4,922 reported deaths.2
