Test detects and differentiates dengue subtypes 1-4.
Qualitative Polymerase Chain Reaction
Lavender (EDTA), Pink (K2EDTA), or Serum Separator Tube (SST).
Separate serum or plasma from cells. Transfer 1 mL serum or plasma to a sterile container. (Min: 0.5mL)
Specimen source required.
Ambient: 24 hours; Refrigerated: 5 days; Frozen: 2 weeks
A negative result does not rule out the presence of PCR inhibitors in the patient specimen or of test-specific nucleic acid in concentrations below the level of detection by this test.
