zika virus

Zika virus is a mosquito borne flavivirus. This RNA virus was discovered long ago (1948) in Africa. It is transmitted through mosquitoes Aedes. This virus is now infecting the population in American countries like Mexico, Brazil, Colombia etc. The tourist visiting these infected countries can be the carriers of this virus to the countries like Germany, Holland, Sweden, Norway, which are free from the virus at present. The disease starts with the symptoms like fever, joint pains, vomiting, diarrhoea, red rashes around the eyes etc. There are a few diagnostic tools available at present, Genekam Biotechnology AG has developed the ready to use PCR kit to detect this virus in mosquitoes and samples of human beings. PCR technology has one advantage of being highly sensitive and specific for this virus. Prevention is only possibility to control this virus at present as there is no treatment and no vaccine available. Supportive treatment is only hope to reduce severity of symptoms!

Contents of the kit: Master mix, primer, probe, positive control, negative control, RNA enzymes

Specificity of the kit: tested with related viruses like dengue, yellow fever, westnile virus, JEV, TBEV, other athropod borne flaviviruses etc and non related targets: it is negative as it does not react with them (the kit is highyl specific)
