One-Shot Flavivirus and Coronavirus Diagnosis

Flaviviruses such as Dengue virus (DENV), West Nile virus (WNV), Powassan virus (POWV), and Zika virus (ZIKV) possess a major global public health burden. Current virologic and serologic diagnostic tools for mosquito-borne diseases are either still in development (ZIKV) or lacking accuracy, sensitivity, and specificity (DENV) so that infections may go unrecognized or be misdiagnosed. Researchers at The University of British Columbia have developed a methodology to diagnose and serotype DENV and ZIKV infections using multiple-reaction monitoring mass spectrometry (MRM-MS).
