Microarray development

Flaviviruses show cross-reactivity in conventional serological tests, and are therefore not fully reliable. This project aims to develop a microarray to improve serological diagnostics. This microarray enables us to test seropositivity for the following arboviruses

  • Denguevirus
  • Yellow fever virus
  • Japanese encephalitis virus
  • Tick-borne encephalitis virus
  • West Nile-virus
  • Crimean Congo virus
  • Chikungunya virus

The microarray will be used to perform sydrome surveillance.
