Aalto Bio Tri-Plex Suite of Proteins and Antibodies

Aalto Bio Reagents has launched it Tri-Plex suite of proteins and antibodies. The suite includes the company's Zika virus (ZIKV) primary envelope, NS1 proteins plus Chinkungunya (CHIKV) E2 wild-type, E1 mutant and E1 wild-type proteins, and a complete set of Dengue virus (DENV) proteins for serotypes 1-4. The Tri-Plex suite was developed so that diagnostic testers would be abley to truly serodiagnose positive cases of ZIKV while ruling out any cross reactivity with similar viruses carried by the Aedes ageypti mosquito, the company said.
