Monkeypox Virus DNA, Qualitative Real-Time PCR:
This is a lab-developed molecular diagnostic test to aid in diagnosis of infection with monkeypox virus. This novel dual target test employs polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to aid in the qualitative detection of non-variola orthopoxviruses and monkeypox virus (West African clade) DNA, using swab specimens from patients presenting with an acute pustular or vesicular rash. This test can differentiate monkeypox viral DNA from other non-variola orthopoxviruses in a specimen, helping to enable faster final diagnosis.
Test results are intended to be used in conjunction with clinical observations and epidemiological risk factors and should not be used as the sole basis of treatment or other patient management decisions.
