Monkeypox Virus and Orthopoxvirus ValuPanel™ Reagents are separately delivered probes and primers for PCR detection of the monkeypox virus and non-variola Orthopoxvirus species.
Since May 2022, cases of monkeypox have been rising in non-endemic countries around the world, and WHO expects that more cases of monkeypox will be identified as surveillance efforts expand. Monkeypox virus is a double-stranded DNA virus that belongs to the Orthopoxvirus genus in the family Poxviridae. The Orthopoxvirus genus also includes the cowpox, variola (which causes smallpox) and vaccinia viruses (used in the smallpox vaccine).
