Zika, Dengue, Chikungunya
(VZDC) test kit
Quickly detect mosquito virus
Rigorously tested for virus detection
The Vector Smart VZDC 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) was used to inactivate viruses.
