Test Description

The Dengue Point of Care Rapid Test is a diagnostic tool designed for the rapid and accurate detection of dengue infection at the point of care. It utilizes a combination antigen-antibody rapid diagnostic test (RDT) for point-of-care testing in high-prevalence areas[1]. The test detects both dengue virus NS1 antigen and IgG/IgM plasma or whole blood[2].

Indications of the Test

The test is intended for use in dengue-endemic countries where access to laboratory facilities is limited. It can help diagnose dengue infection at the point of care, allowing for timely management of the disease[1][5].

Patient Preparation/Instructions

No specific patient preparation is required for the test. It is designed to be used directly at the point of care, making it accessible and convenient for healthcare professionals[2].

Typical Reference Values

The test provides qualitative results, with the presence of dengue virus NS1 antigen indicating a positive result[2].

Turn Around Time

The test is designed to provide rapid results, allowing for quick diagnosis and treatment decisions[2].
