Zika Testing Available At The ISDH Laboratories
The Indiana State Department of Health Laboratories is now offering the Trioplex rRT-PCR assay, a molecular test for Zika, Dengue, and Chikungunya viruses. The Trioplex rRT-PCR assay has been authorized for the qualitative detection and differentiation of Dengue and Chikungunya viruses from serum and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) or for Zika virus from serum, urine, CSF, and amniotic fluid. Submissions of CSF, urine, or amniotic fluid for Zika testing should be paired with a serum specimen from the same patient. Read more here.
