Tropical & Vector-Borne Diseases

Antigens and Antibodies for Commercial Assay Development


Tropical and vector-borne diseases account for more than 17% of all infectious diseases, causing more than 1 million deaths annually. Many tropical diseases belong to the Flavivirus genus (e.g. Dengue, Zika, Chikungunya and West Nile) and are highly homologous, which leads to cross-reactive epitopes. Differentially diagnosing flaviviral infections has become increasingly challenging in regions where the viruses co-circulate.

Meridian Life Science has the most comprehensive range of tropical and vector-borne antigens and antibodies, including our new ZERO X-REACT Zika Envelope Antigen.

Please see our complete flyer attached for a full list of products and important troubleshooting tips for reducing cross-reactivity in immunoassays and increasing IgM detection sensitivity. Consider adding TRU Block™ to further reduce background, HA  and HAMA interference in your assay.
