VIASURE Real Time PCR Detection Kits


Monkeypox is a rare sylvatic zoonosis caused by DNA virus, called monkeypox virus, belonging to the family Poxviridae.

Transmission can occur person-to-person through close direct contact with lesions (vesicles) and mucous membranes, body fluids and even through respiratory droplets expelled into the air and fomites. The incubation period can range from 5 to 21 days. The disease is often selflimiting, and symptoms usually resolve spontaneously within 5 to 21 days after onset.

VIASURE Monkeypox Virus Real Time PCR Detection Kit is designed for the qualitative identification of DNA from Monkeypox virus in serum, vesicle/cutaneous-skin fluid, fluid from wounds and swab wound from individuals suspected of Monkeypox virus infection by their healthcare provider.


Infection due to Monkeypox Virus displays similar symptoms and has a similar transmission route as other pathogens such as Varicella Zoster Virus, Herpes Virus 1, Herpes Virus 2, Treponema pallidum or C. trachomatis making clinical diagnosis difficult.
