Useful For

Qualitative detection of Zika virus RNA in paired urine and serum from individuals meeting CDC Zika virus clinical or epidemiologic criteria

Testing Algorithm

The FDA requires that urine specimens be tested in conjunction with a paired serum specimen; order RZIKS / Zika Virus, PCR, Molecular Detection, Serum for the paired serum specimen.

 

The following algorithms are available in Special Instructions:

-Assessment for Zika Virus Infection in Nonpregnant Individuals

-Assessment for Zika Virus Infection in Pregnant Women
