ViroKey MPXV PCR Test

In Vitro Detection of MPXV DNA From Human Skin Lesion Specimens


The ViroKey MPXV PCR Test is a real-time PCR test intended for the qualitative detection of DNA from monkeypox virus (MPXV) in human skin lesion material, including swabs of lesion exudate, roofs from more than one lesion, or lesion crusts.

Results are for the identification of MPXV and should be interpreted in conjunction with other clinical and laboratory findings. Positive results are indicative of the presence of MPXV DNA and negative results do not preclude the absence of MPXV DNA. Negative results must be combined with clinical observations, patient history, and epidemiological information.
