    Dengue IgM - Rapid is a diagnostic test that detects the presence of dengue virus in the blood of the person. The test is performed to identify dengue fever in the early stage, which means within the first five days of infection. The rapid result of the test makes it convenient for individuals to start treatment early and take preventive measures to avoid further complications.

    Dengue fever is a mosquito-borne disease caused by one of the four dengue viruses. It is prevalent in tropical and subtropical regions and can cause mild to severe flu-like symptoms. People affected by the dengue virus experience symptoms such as high fever, headache, muscle and joint pains, nausea, vomiting, and rash. In some cases, it can lead to severe bleeding, organ failure, and even death.


    Some of the common symptoms associated with dengue are as follows: 
    - High fever ranging from 104°F – 105°F
    - Severe headache
    - Joint and muscle pain
    - Skin rash
    - Nausea and vomiting
    - Pain behind the eyes
    - Cold and cough
    - Loss of appetite

    The dengue virus is predominantly transmitted through the bite of an infected female Aedes mosquito. The infected mosquito bites a person releasing the virus into his/her bloodstream. The virus stays in the blood for up to 14 days, after which it is not detectable using this test.

    Test Procedure

    The Dengue IgM Rapid Test is a diagnostic test that involves drawing a small amount of blood from the patient's arm. A healthcare provider or phlebotomist will collect the blood sample by inserting a needle into a vein in your arm. They will then use a vial or syringe to draw the blood and send it to the lab for testing.

    At the lab, a few drops of blood will be mixed with a solution containing dengue virus-specific antibodies. The mixture is then spread over a strip containing dengue antigen. If dengue virus antibodies are present in the blood, the mixture will react with the antigen, producing a visible line on the strip, indicating a positive result.


    In case of a positive diagnosis, individuals will need medical attention and treatment from their healthcare provider. Dengue fever can be treated with medication to reduce fever and relieve symptoms such as joint pain and headache. Getting plenty of rest and drinking fluids are also essential steps in the recovery process. Additionally, patients may need platelet transfusion therapy if their platelet count drops too low.
