A*STAR’s diagnostic test kit that can simultaneously test for Zika, dengue and chikungunya is ready for use. The kit delivers results in a space of up to 2 hours, and offers advantages in a region where all three mosquito-borne diseases are present. 
 
Developed by a collaboration between the Bioinformatics Institute's Dr Sebastian Maurer-Stroh and the Experimental Therapeutics Centre's Dr. Masafumi Inoue, the availability of the kit was covered widely by the media.
