Influenza B Yamagata + Victoria lineage targets74787-3: Influenza virus B Victoria & Yamagata lineage RNA panel
To report all A subtyping targets tested59423-4: FLUAV HA RNA XXX PCR

*Combines Influenza A pdm A target and Influenza A pdm H1 target needed to test for influenza A 2009 H1N1 into one code (does not include the universal Influenza A target)

**Combines Influenza A H5a target and Influenza A H5b target needed to test for influenza A/H5 into one code (does not include the universal Influenza A target)

†Only use with 60494-2 or 38272-1
