Comments

The ZIKV Detect IgM Capture ELISA assay is intended for in vitro diagnostic use under FDA Emergency Use Authorization (EUA). This test has not been FDA cleared or approved. In compliance with this authorization, please visit https://aruplab.com/zika for more information and to access the applicable information sheets.

The possibility of false-positive or false-negative results must be considered. RT-PCR testing on both a serum and urine specimen is recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to rule out false-negative IgM results in patients experiencing symptoms for less than 2 weeks. Specimens collected for IgM testing greater than or equal to 2 weeks after symptom onset do not require any additional testing. For more information, please review the current clinical guidelines for Zika virus testing at: www.cdc.gov/zika/.
