Dengue Overview

Dengue fever, also known as breakbone fever, is a tropical infectious disease widely found in Africa, South and Southeast Asia, Australia, South America and the Caribbean. Dengue is commonly transmitted through mosquito bites and is a very serious infection as it can cause hemorrhagic fever, leading to death.

DEN NS1 vs. DEN IgG/IgM Testing

Dengue Level of Detection Figure
Once an individual is infected, antigen NS1 from the dengue virus becomes present and is detectable through our Dengue NS1 test. Antibodies IgG and IgM against the virus only becomes detectable a few days after the patient’s first contact with the virus. After a week, NS1 would not be detectable, which is why our Dengue IgG/IgM test can be used to detect the later stages of Dengue infection!
