ABBOTT Dengue Duo Cassette 25T
Dengue virus is a flavivirus found largely in areas of the tropics and sub-tropics. Over half the world’s population lives in regions at risk of potential dengue transmission, making dengue the most important arbovirus disease in humans, in terms of morbidity and mortality. There are four distinct but antigenically related serotypes of dengue viruses, and transmission is via female mosquito, principally Aedes aegypti, Aedes albopictus, and Aedes polynesienses. The Panbio® Dengue Duo Cassette is a rapid immunochromatography test used to detect IgM and high-titre IgG antibodies to dengue virus in human serum, plasma, and whole blood.
