North American Mosquito
East (NAM-e) test kit
Quickly detect mosquito virus
The Vector Smart™ North American Mosquito East (NAM-e) test is a real-time PCR multiplex test intended to detect West Nile virus (WNV), St. Louis encephalitis virus (SLEV), and eastern equine encephalitis virus (EEEV) through extracted ribonucleic acid (RNA) in mosquito samples.
Rigorously tested for virus detection
The Vector Smart NAM-e test kit has been tested with QIAamp Viral RNA Mini Extraction Kit (Qiagen), MagMax -96 Viral RNA Isolation Kit (Thermo Fisher Scientific), the sbeadex livestock kit (LGC), and CoWin Bio Viral DNA/RNA kit CW-E-001 or -002 (Jiangsu CoWin Biotech Co., Ltd), and run using the Co-Dx Box thermal cycler. Triton X-100 (Sigma-Aldrich) is used to inactivate the viruses.
Run your own PCR lab
Say goodbye to long wait times and take control of your abatement program by bringing testing in-house.
Simple, streamlined workflow
Get test results in 60-90 minutes instead of waiting days or weeks for results from a centralized lab.
Controlled for accuracy
Includes both internal and positive controls on each test to ensure testing efficacy.
Easy to use
