Novel assay detects Zika virus in less than 15 minutes

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – A newly developed assay that rapidly detects Zika virus and can be implemented in a mobile suitcase laboratory could facilitate testing of pregnant women in rural and low-resource settings, researchers say. Dr. Ahmed Abd El Wahed of Georg-August-University in Goettingen, Lower Saxony, Germany, told Reuters Health, “Currently Dengue, Zika and Chikungunya viruses represent a global …

Point-of-care diagnostic promising for detection of Chikungunya virus

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – A newly developed reverse transcription recombinase polymerase amplification (RT-RPA) assay shows promise as a point-of-care diagnostic for Chikungunya virus (CHIKV), researchers report. CHIKV is transmitted to humans by Aedes mosquitoes, which also transmit the Dengue and Zika viruses. The virus is “currently transmitted in about 60 countries . . . (and) causes acute flu-like symptoms …

New test could allow earlier TB detection

Researchers at the University of Nottingham in England have developed a blood test that can quickly detect Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex bacteria (MTC) in cattle. The test, according to the researchers, can detect the bacterium Mycobacterium bovis faster and earlier than the currently used Single Intradermal Comparative Cervical Tuberculin (SICCT) skin test, which is about 90% sensitive. Read full story here
