myTest Diagnostics offers same day (24h) Monkeypox PCR testing
About our test
Our lab-developed molecular diagnostic test aids in the diagnosis of infection with monkeypox virus. This novel target test employs polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to aid in the qualitative detection of monkeypox virus (West African clade) DNA, using swab specimens from patients presenting with a history of potential exposure and an indicative fever (1-4 days) and/ or an acute pustular or vesicular rash. The myTest Diagnostics test can detect monkeypox viral DNA from the first day of suspected fever. Helping to enable faster final diagnosis. Test results are intended to be used in conjunction with clinical observations and epidemiological risk factors and should not be used as the sole basis of treatment or other patient management decisions.
