We are proud to announce launching the DV106 Monkeypox Virus Nucleic Acid Detection Kit (Real-Time PCR)!


What is the Risk of Monkeypox Currently?

Monkeypox is an illness caused by the monkeypox virus. In May 2022, multiple cases of monkeypox are being identified in several non-endemic countries. This is not typical of past patterns of monkeypox. A multi-country outbreak of monkeypox is currently underway in places where the virus has not been typically found before, in Europe, the Americas, Africa, the Western Pacific, and countries of the Eastern Mediterranean. More cases than normal have been reported in 2022 in parts of Africa that have previously reported cases, such as Nigeria, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and the Central African Republic. WHO is working with all affected countries to enhance surveillance and provide guidance on how to stop the spread and how to care for those infected.[1]


How does Monkeypox Transmit?

Monkeypox virus can be transmitted from person to person through close contact with respiratory secretions of an infected person or animal, skin or mucous membrane lesions, blood, body fluids, or items recently contaminated with body fluids or diseased material of a patient.[2] In addition, the monkeypox virus can also be transmitted through mother-to-child and sexual transmission.


What are the Clinical Symptoms of Monkeypox Virus?

Symptoms of monkeypox virus infection are similar to those of smallpox, but the clinical severity is less severe, with an incubation period of usually 5 to 21 days. The main symptoms are systemic fever, headache, muscle aches or swollen lymph nodes, skin papules, vesicles or pustules, and other pathogenic microorganism infections, lasting 2-5 weeks. And the duration is 2-5 weeks[3].


What is Monkeypox Virus Nucleic Acid Detection Kit (Real-Time PCR)?

This kit is used for in vitro qualitative detection of MPXV in clinical samples such as nasal swabs, oropharyngeal swabs, saliva, urine, skin lesions, exudates, blood and other clinical samples of suspected cases of monkeypox virus (MPXV) infection.
