Dengue and Chickungunya Screening Kit

Dengue (DENV) and chikungunya (CHIV) transmitted by Aedes mosquitoes, are a cause of great concern to public health in India. Every year, thousands of individuals are affected and contribute to the burden of health care. Serology testing for DENV and CHIV diagnosis is not useful in the early phase of the disease and is less sensitive.

Mylab Discovery Solutions provides a highly sensitive and specific real time RT PCR for accurate and rapid diagnosis of dengue and chikungunya viral nucleic acids. Early stage diagnosis of viral nucleic acid would help greatly in disease management. The assay will be a useful tool for differential diagnosis of dengue fever or chikungunya in a situation where a number of other clinically indistinguishable infectious diseases like malaria, rickettsia and leptospira occur.

Additionally Mylablifesolutions offers a common DENV/CHIV screening kit which is a one-step multiplex real time RT PCR for simultaneous detection and differentiation of dengue and chikungunya virus from plasma. It is of additional advantage as India has reported many cases of co circulation and/or co infection of Dengue and chikungunya viruses.
