New PCR AmpliRun Controls for Arbovirus
Infections caused by arthropod-borne-viruses (arbovirus) are a major cause of hospitalization. Dengue (serotypes 1, 2, 3 and 4), Zika virus and chikungunya are arboviruses that produce similar clinical presentations. The diseases caused by these viruses are spread to people primarily through the bite of infected Aedes species mosquitoes and shares clinical features that are difficult to distinguish by symptoms observation. Recent outbreaks associated with these viruses show the importance of a rapid and precise clinical diagnosis.
