-23%

The Varicella Zoster Virus (VZV) Qualitative PCR Test is a highly sensitive diagnostic procedure designed to detect the presence of the VZV DNA in a patient’s sample, typically from swabs of skin lesions, cerebrospinal fluid, or blood. This test is crucial for the diagnosis of infections caused by the Varicella Zoster Virus, which is responsible for both chickenpox in first-time infectees and shingles (herpes zoster) in those who have had chickenpox in the past. The PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) technique amplifies traces of the virus’s DNA, enabling the detection of an active infection even when the viral load is low.

Conducted at DNA Labs UAE, a leading facility in genetic and molecular diagnostics, the VZV Qualitative PCR Test offers a reliable and rapid diagnosis essential for initiating timely treatment and managing the spread of the virus. The test is priced at 1000 AED, reflecting the sophisticated technology and expertise involved in conducting the analysis and interpreting the results. By opting for this test at DNA Labs UAE, patients and healthcare providers can expect high-quality service and accurate diagnostic information, which is crucial for effective patient care and management of VZV infections.

Test Details

The Varicella Zoster Virus (VZV) Qualitative PCR test is a diagnostic test used to detect the presence of the Varicella Zoster Virus in a patient’s body. This test uses the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) technique to amplify and detect the specific DNA or RNA sequences of the virus. VZV is the virus responsible for causing chickenpox and shingles.

The PCR test can be performed on various samples, such as blood, cerebrospinal fluid, or skin lesions, depending on the suspected site of infection. The test involves collecting a sample from the patient and extracting the genetic material (DNA or RNA) from the sample. The extracted genetic material is then amplified using specific primers that target the VZV DNA or RNA sequences.

If the virus is present in the sample, the PCR amplification will produce a positive result, indicating an active VZV infection. The VZV Qualitative PCR test is highly sensitive and specific, allowing for early and accurate diagnosis of VZV infections. It is particularly useful in cases where the clinical presentation is atypical or when other diagnostic methods, such as viral culture or serology, may be inconclusive.

This test is commonly used in the diagnosis of chickenpox, shingles, and other VZV-related complications, such as central nervous system infections. It can also be used to monitor the effectiveness of antiviral treatment and to detect VZV reactivation in immunocompromised individuals.

It is important to note that the VZV Qualitative PCR test is a laboratory-based test and requires specialized equipment and trained personnel to perform. The test results should be interpreted in conjunction with the patient’s clinical presentation and other diagnostic findings to make an accurate diagnosis.
