The Zika Rapid Test is a chromatographic immunoassay kit for rapid and differential detection kit of the viral infection, zika, in human blood.

Zika virus (ZIKV) is a member of the virus family Flaviviridae and the genus Flavivirus. It is spread by daytime-active Aedes mosquitoes, such as A. aegypti and A. albopictus. Its name comes from the Zika Forest of Uganda, where the virus was first isolated in 1947. Zika virus is a flavivirus and related to dengue, yellow fever, Japanese’s encephalitis, and West Nile viruses. Since the 1950’s, it has been known to occur within a narrow equatorial belt from Arica to Asia. From 2007 to 2016, the virus spread eastward across the Pacific Ocean to the Americas where the 2015-2016 Zika virus epidemic reached pandemic levels.
