New article from our colleagues at Johns Hopkins University - Field-deployable molecular diagnostic platform for arbovirus and Wolbachia detection in Aedes aegypti.

“Surveillance of mosquito infection status is critical for planning and deployment of proper mosquito control initiatives. Concurrently, Wolbachia is being widely used as a control method for arboviral transmission. Point-of-care (POC) detection assays are necessary for monitoring the infection prevalence and geographic range of viruses as well as Wolbachia in mosquito vector populations.“

Natalie N. Rutkowski, Yuemei Dong and ProfileGeorge Dimopouloss developed a reliable, specific, and sensitive diagnostic assay for detecting Zika and dengue virus and Wolbachia bacterium in mosquitoes using the real-time qPCR platform bCUBE.

The portable qPCR bCUBE diagnostic platform has potential as a practical field-deployable diagnostic test for vector-borne disease surveillance programs.
