Zika virus is a vector-borne pathogen that is spread among humans primarily through the bite of infected Aedes mosquitoes. With an active outbreak occurring throughout regions in Central and South America, preventing the spread of this disease has become a top priority. ATCC strains and nucleic acid preparations serve as critical controls in research and validation, and are authenticated and backed by polyphasic testing – ensuring the consistency and reliability you have come to trust from ATCC.
