Dengue fever is a painful and debilitating mosquito-borne disease caused by any one of the four closely related dengue viruses. These viruses are related to the viruses that cause West Nile infection and yellow fever. The tropical disease is transmitted by the Aedes aegypti mosquito causing a range of mild to severe symptoms. The basic symptoms include high fever, headache, pain behind the eyes, joint and muscle pain, nausea, vomiting, skin rash, and mild nosebleeds.
As the disease progresses, dengue leads to hemorrhagic fever, a rare complication characterized by high fever, damage to lymph and blood vessels, bleeding from the nose and gums, enlargement of the liver, and failure of the circulatory system. The symptoms may progress to massive bleeding, shock, and death, this is called dengue shock syndrome (DSS).
There is no vaccine to prevent dengue fever. The best way to prevent the disease is to prevent bites by infected mosquitoes, particularly if you are living in or traveling to a tropical area. This involves protecting yourself and making efforts to keep the mosquito population down, for example, using mosquito repellent, wearing long-sleeved clothes, and using mosquito nets. An indirect method of preventing dengue fever is removing breeding opportunities such as stagnant water bodies found in cans and flower pots. Individuals with weakened immune systems are at greater risk, such as HIV positive patients.
An estimated 390 million dengue infections occur worldwide each year, with about 96 million resulting in illness. Most cases occur in tropical areas of the world, with the greatest risk occurring in India, southeast Asia, southern China, Taiwan, Pacific Islands, the Caribbean (except Cuba and the Cayman Islands), Mexico, Africa, and Central and South America (except Chile, Paraguay, and Argentina).

Allow the test kit to reach room temperature (15-30°C) prior to testing.
Bring the pouch to room temperature before opening it. Remove the test cassette from the sealed pouch and use it within 1 hour. Place the cassette on a clean and level surface.
For Serum or Plasma specimen: Hold the dropper vertically and transfer 3 drops of serum or plasma (approximately 75 μL) to the specimen area, and start the timer.
For Venipuncture Whole Blood specimen: Hold the dropper vertically and transfer 3 drops of whole blood (approximately 75 μL) to the specimen area, then add 1 drop of buffer (approximately 40 μL), and start the timer.
Wait for the colored line(s) to appear. Results will appear in 10-12 minutes. Interpretation of the results after 20 minutes is not recommended.
This kit is designed for in vitro use only. Eating, drinking or smoking in the area where the specimens or kits are handled is not advisable.
