DIOGIN, a company specializing in molecular diagnosis, announced on the 28th that it has completed the development of the DLP™Q MPXV Real Detection Kit" that can quickly diagnose monkey head spears within an hour.
The monkey Duchang, a common infectious disease caused by the Monkeybox virus, has already been spreading to more than 50 countries around the world since it was first discovered in the UK last month, and the first confirmed case occurred in Korea on the 22nd. Monkey duchang is similar to "human duchang" (natural head), which has been declared eradicated worldwide, but is a viral disease with low infectivity and severity. Human-to-human infections are transmitted through grafting with contaminated substances such as lesions, body fluids, respiratory droplets, and bedding. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), most of the infected recover naturally, and the fatality rate is reported to be around 3-6%.
"Monkey Doochang" currently has a treatment, so only accurate diagnosis can be made and treated with a diagnosis. Therefore, experts point out that considering the characteristics of "monkey head lance" with an incubation period of up to 21 days, it is necessary to quickly screen for infection through a preemptive PCR test for suspected people.
Based on his experience in developing the COVID-19 diagnostic kit, Diojin believes that this product can determine whether it is a monkey head lance virus within an hour and contribute to suppressing the global spread trend.
