Zika virus is a member of the Flavivirus family and is structurally closely related to Dengue virus. Due to similar symptoms, Zika virus infections can easily be misdiagnosed as Dengue virus infections and vice-versa. To ensure highest specificity and sensitivity, we have developed a new recombinant full length Zika virus NS1 antigen.
Zika Virus NS1 antigen (BA149R01) is recombinantly expressed in the Drosophila melanogaster S2 cell-based expression system ExpreS2TM and highly purified by chromatography. With new developments like Zika Virus NS1, our portfolio of recombinant antigens is constantly growing!
