CDC develops new rabies rapid test with far-reaching impact
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently unveiled a new rabies rapid test that can more easily and precisely diagnose rabies infections in animals. According to the recently published CDC study by Gigante and colleagues, the LN34 pan-lyssavirus real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay (LN34) displays a higher diagnostic capability when compared to the direct fluorescent antibody (DFA) test, the current gold standard. The reliability and robustness of the LN34 test rivals the DFA test in several aspects, and could very well replace the DFA test as the primary rabies diagnostic method.
