FDA EUA Monkeypox qPCR Test Kit

Accurately detects monkeypox (mpox) by qPCR.


CE/IVD Marked Product


Research Use Product

The gold standard qPCR test directly detects the presence of the mpox (monkeypox) viral DNA. By detecting the two virus-specific genes, J2L and B6R, using the human RNase P as a control, our qPCR multiplex assay can detect the targets and control in one reaction tube.

The design allows detection of the virus even if part of one gene is deleted in a variant. Validated on commonly used instruments such as ABI 7500 Fast Dx, ABI QuantStudio 5, Bio-Rad CFX 384, and Roche Lightcycler 480II with a detection limit of 25 to 80 copies/ml sample, any CLIA lab can validate this test.

FDA Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) Authorized


The detection limit of the test ranges from 25 to 80 copies/ml of sample, depending on the instrument used.

Validated Machines

Unlike other vendors, we validate the test on the most commonly used qPCR instruments so you can easily pick one qPCR instrument in your own lab for CLIA validation.  Our validated instruments include:

  • ABI 7500 Fast Dx
  • ABI QuantStudio 5
  • Bio-Rad CFX384
  • Roche LightCycler 480II

Mpox Virus and Infection


The Spreads of Mpox Virus

Detected in May 2022, mpox viruses have spread in many countries. The mpox virus can spread from person to person through close, personal, or intimate contact. The media for the spreads include:

  • Body fluids and respiratory secretions
  • Touching surfaces and objects
  • Body contact and sex

Symptoms of Mpox

The most obvious symptoms are itchy and painful rash appearing at different parts of the body after 1 to 4 days after infection. In addition, the patient may have flu-like symptoms such as chills, fever, headache, and aches in muscle or back.


Importance of Testing

Testing for mpox protects the patient and loved ones and stops the spreading of the virus further in the community. Currently, the CDC only recommends mpox testing when a rash consistent with mpox appears.
