Need Mpox Virus Molecular Controls?

Mpox virus

Mpox controls for quality control, research and assay development are available.

Mpox is a viral, zoonotic disease endemic to several countries in Central and Western Africa. In mid-2022 an outbreak was identified in Europe; the first-time wide community spread was seen in non-endemic regions. Belonging to the genus Orthopoxvirus and the family Poxviridae, Mpox virus causes a smallpox-like disease in humans.

Symptoms of Mpox

Symptoms typically last 2 to 4 weeks and include fever, intense headache, muscle aches, back pain, low energy, swollen lymph nodes, and a skin rash or lesions. The rapid and accurate diagnosis of this disease during the early stages of infection is essential for timely and proper treatment.

Preferred testing method

PCR-based methods are the preferred laboratory method for the diagnosis of Mpox. They allow for highly sensitive detection and differentiation of Monkeypox from other orthopoxviruses. However, the development and validation of these assays are dependent on the availability of high-quality reference materials.
