The Chikungunya rapid test IgG/IgM Ab (CHIK) is a lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of IgG&IgM anti-Chikungunya virus (CHIK) in human serum or plasma. Chikungunya rapid test is intended to be used as a screening test and as an aid in the diagnosis of infection with Chikungunya.
This IgG/IgM rapid test is used to quickly identify Chikungunya, an illness which is clinically very difficult to distinguish from dengue. This Chikungunya rapid test results in a pink line in the 'test zone' and a pink line in the control zone. A pink line in the test zone indicates the presence of Chikungunya.
Chikungunya is a viral disease transmitted by infected mosquitoes. It is prevalent in Africa and Asia, and in recent years has spread to Europe and the Americas.
Chikungunya rapid test can be deployed in Asia, Latin America, Africa, Europe and Canada, but not yet in the U.S.
