BioFront Technologies launches the first ELISA kit for Zika Virus antigen detection!



Great news for Zika virus researchers in search of a fast, affordable, and accurate way to detect the presence of the Zika virus in vitro.

BioFront Technologies Inc.now offers the first enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) kit that accurately and specifically detects Zika virus non-structural 1 (NS1) protein!

The MonoTrace Zika Virus NS1 ELISA kit is a unique monolconal antibody-based assay which demonstrates strong reactivity to all major ZIKV genotypes yet shows no cross-reactivity with Dengue virus NS1.

This robust and sensitive assay can save time compared to Western blotting (quantitative results in under 2 hours) and represents a high-throughput yet cost-efficient alternative to RT-qPCR.


Left: Standard curve generated using recombinant Zika Virus (rZIKV) NS1 protein
Right: Detection of secreted ZIKV NS1 protein in titered cell culture supernatant


The highly sensitive monoclonal antibody-based sandwich ELISA recognizes the 3 major ZIKV genotypes and can specifically detect secreted NS1 in cell culture supernatants and intracellular NS1 in lysates.



Left: Specific detection of secreted ZIKV NS1 protein in supernatant from Zika virus infected cells (ZIKV). Supernatant from uninfected (mock) or Dengue virus infected (DENV) cells were negative.
Right:
Specific detection of intracellular ZIKV NS1 protein in lysates from Zika virus infected cells (ZIKV). Lysates from uninfected (mock) or Dengue virus infected (DENV) cells were negative.
With no expensive equipment required and an assay time of less than 2 hours, the MonoTrace Zika Virus NS1 ELISA is the perfect tool for monitoring infection or screening antiviral therapeutics.
Detection of ZIKV NS1 protein in supernatant from cells treated with various doses of an antiviral therapeautic compound 'X'.
