A virus is an infectious microorganism made up of a nucleic acid segment (either DNA or RNA) wrapped by a protein coat. A virus cannot replicate on its own; instead, it must infect cells and use host cell components to replicate itself.
A virus test determines the kind of virus you are effected with.
Monkeypox PCR Test
Monkeypox virus (MPV) is a double-stranded DNA, zoonotic virus and a species of the genus Orthopoxvirus in the family Poxviridae. It is one of the human orthopoxviruses that includes variola (VARV), cowpox (CPX), and vaccinia (VACV) viruses.

Cases of monkeypox (MPX) acquired in the EU have recently been reported in nine EU Member States (Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, and the Netherlands) and the UK. Monkeypox (MPX) does not spread easily between people. Human-to-human transmission occurs through close contact with infectious material from skin lesions of an infected person, through respiratory droplets in prolonged face-to-face contact, and fomites. The predominance, in the current outbreak, of diagnosed human MPX cases among men having sex with men (MSM), and the nature of the presenting lesions in some cases, suggest transmission occurred during sexual intercourse. Based on ECDC’s epidemiological assessment, the likelihood of MPX spreading in persons having multiple sexual partners is considered high. Although most cases in current outbreaks have presented mild disease symptoms, the monkeypox virus (MPXV) may cause severe disease in certain population groups (young children, pregnant women, immunosuppressed persons).
If you have been at risk of contact or in contact with an infected person we can offer a PCR test to detect if you have been infected or not.
STREP A TEST
- Strep A Test is a specific immunological test for the detection of Group A streptococcus bacteria in throat infections
- It helps to quickly know if a sore throat is caused by a Strep A or other germs (usually viruses) which do not require antibiotic treatment.
- The Strep A Test should be performed in case of throat symptoms such as red/swollen throat or tonsils, body aches, headaches, nausea, vomiting or listlessness.
- A positive result means that the Group A strep was present in the throat sample and you should consult a physician, who will decide about the next step.
