Monkeypox virus infection is a viral zoonosis infection (a virus origin in animals and then infect to humans) with similar symptoms to smallpox: typically presents clinically with fever, swollen lymph nodes, and/or rash, and also may lead to a series of medical complications. Monkeypox virus belongs to the orthopoxvirus genus of the Poxviridae family. There are two distinct clades of monkeypox virus: Monkeypox Virus Clade One (I) and Monkeypox Virus Clade Two (II). Monkeypox virus was initially discovered in monkeys by a Danish laboratory in 1958, then the first human case was reported in a child in the Democratic Republic of the Congo in 1970.
DaAn Gene's monkeypox detection kit is based on WHO's recommended diagnosis method: real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR), with high specificity and sensitivity in monkeypox diagnosis.
