PathoDetect Dengue Screening Kit for diagnosis of Dengue virus by RT-PCR
Dengue (DENV), a mosquito-borne viral disease, is a major public health problem and its incidence has increased significantly in recent decades. It is estimated that 96 Million cases have clinically severe symptoms. Dengue is caused by a virus of the Flaviviridae family and has four distinct serotypes (DENV-1, DENV-2, DENV-3 and DENV-4).
Diagnosis of Dengue:
The diagnostic tests include virological tests (that directly detect the virus) and serological tests (which detect human response to the virus). As per the WHO, patient samples collected during the first week of illness should be tested by both serological and virological methods (RT-PCR).
Advantages of Mylab Dengue Testing Kit:
- Mylab’s Dengue detection kit is a RT-PCR based for detection of all four types of Dengue serotypes.
- It is very useful tool in accurately identifying dengue fever from other similar diseases with similar symptoms like Chikungunya, malaria, rickettsia, etc.
- A combination of validated primers, hydrolysis probes, and hot-start DNA polymerase ensures that the kit leads to highly-specific and ultrasensitive results in a single step.
