This test is used to diagnose a Zika virus infection.
Test results are for the identification of Zika viral RNA. Zika viral RNA is generally detectable in blood during the acute phase of the infection. Following the onset of symptoms RNA may be detected in serum for approximately 7 days, or longer in a pregnant patient. A positive result provides evidence of Zika virus infection. Laboratories are required to report all positive results to the appropriate public health authorities.
Negative results do not rule out Zika virus infection and should not be used as the sole basis for patient management decisions. Serological testing should also be considered. Laboratory test results should always be considered in the context of clinical observations, patient history, and epidemiological information in making a final diagnosis and patient management decisions.
