Monkeypox Virus RT-PCR Kit Available

Creative Biogene Monkeypox Virus Real-Time PCR Kit is used to detect monkeypox virus in serum or lesion exudate samples by using real-time PCR systems.

The kit contains a specific ready-to-use system for the detection of the monkeypox virus. Fluorescence is emitted and measured by the real-time systems' optical unit during the PCR.

Monkeypox virus (MPV) is a double-stranded DNA, zoonotic virus, and a species of the genus Orthopoxvirus in the family Poxviridae. It is one of the human orthopoxviruses that includes variola (VARV), cowpox (CPX), and vaccinia (VACV) viruses. 

The West African clade of the monkeypox virus has recently been detected in patients in Wales (UK), Dallas (US), Israel, Singapore, and Nigeria.
