Native Dengue Antigens

Many, if not most, of the new diagnostics feature native dengue antigens from Microbix, the world’s most experienced and leading dengue antigen supplier. We have been growing dengue in our Canadian labs since 1994.

Your Trusted Dengue Antigen Supplier

The dengue virus carries three structural proteins: capsid protein C, membrane protein M, and envelope glycoprotein E; as well as seven non-structural proteins (NS1, NS2A, NS2B, NS3, NS4A, NS4B, NS5). Among these, the envelope glycoprotein E and the non-structural protein NS1 are the most important to serological testing. Using the Microbix native dengue virus in dengue diagnostic assays provides superior identification of all dengue proteins.

Our native dengue product panel includes purified native dengue 1,2,3, and 4 serotypes.
