The Chikungunya IgM Rapid Test Cassette is a lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of IgM anti-chikungunya virus (CHIK) in human serum, plasma or whole blood. It is intended to be used as a screening test and as an aid in the diagnosis of infection with CHIK.
The Chikungunya virus(CHIKV) is an enveloped, positive strand, RNA virus, first identified in 1953. CHIK fever is transmitted to humans by the bite of a variety of mosquitoes. Symptoms of sudden onset of fever, chills, headache, nausea, vomiting, joint pain with or without swelling, low back pain, and rash are very similar to those of dengue. However, unlike dengue, there is no hemorrhagic or shock syndrome form. Therefore, the ability to distinguish CHIKV infection from dengue virus infection would be extremely beneficial, particularly in areas where dengue virus infection is endemic or epidemic
