Dengue is an endemic disease affecting tropical and subtropical regions around the world. It is the most important arboviral disease in terms of morbidity, mortality and socio-economical costs. According to the World Health Organization, 50 to 100 millions cases of dengue infections occur each year, resulting in 250,000 to 500,000 severe complicated forms and 24,000 deaths.
The biggest challenge associated with patient management is rapid and specific detection of dengue virus during the acute phase in order to implement timely clinical treatment.
Platelia Dengue NS1 Ag is an antigen-capture ELISA assay for dengue NS1 antigen detection. It allows an early diagnosis of primary and secondary dengue acute infections with very high specificity.
Dengue NS1 Antigen STRIP is an immunochromatographic test for specific detection of dengue virus NS1 Ag. The test is well adapted for situations requiring individual testing and urgent diagnosis of acute infection.
