Zika and Arboviruses Detection by Real-Time PCR
A simple solution for dengue, chikungunya, and Zika virus RNA detection: just add RNA
Zika virus is a single-stranded RNA arbovirus that is spread to humans primarily through the bite of an infected Aedes-species mosquito, causing Zika virus disease. Infected individuals may have fever, rash, joint pain, and/or conjunctivitis, but symptoms are usually mild. A pregnant woman can pass the virus to her unborn baby, and there may be a link between Zika virus and birth defects.
