ViroSpot MN assay, a novel tool for antigenic characterization of influenza viruses and serology

Selecting vaccine strains that match circulating influenza viruses antigenically remains an annual challenge. Vaccine mismatch [e.g., for recent A(H3N2) viruses] has contributed to reduced vaccine effectiveness. Reduced vaccine effectiveness not only may affect public health, but also causes economic losses due to absenteeism from work. Vaccine mismatches also fuel the ongoing debate about the effectiveness of the influenza vaccine.
