VERSANT Zika RNA 1.0 Assay (kPCR)
Excellent Assay Performance
- High-specificity (no cross-reactivity with other Flaviviruses)
- Dual-target design improves detection
- Amplifies and detects all currently identified Zika genotypes: West African (Nigerian cluster), East African (MR766 prototype cluster), and Asian
- Good specificity when tested against cross-reactive species and high sensitivity with commercially available Zika cultures.
Sample Handling Simplicity
- Validated for serum, plasma, or urine (collected alongside a patient-matched serum or plasma specimen)
- 48 tests per kit
- Internal control (IC) to monitor RNA extraction and PCR efficiency
- Includes UNG for contamination control
- Validated for multiple thermal cyclers (THERMO FISHER QuantStudio 5, BIO-RAD CFX96, and ABI 7500 Fast Dx)
- Concordant with CDC Zika assay using a variety of patient-matched clinical samples (plasma, serum, and urine)**
