The Panbio dengue IgM Capture ELISA is for the qualitative detection of IgM antibodies to dengue antigen in serum, as an aid in the clinical laboratory diagnosis of patients with clinical symptoms consistent with dengue fever.
Detection of IgM antibodies to dengue virus by ELISA is a valuable procedure, particularly in second and subsequent infections where the occurrence of complications is high. Serum IgM antibodies can be detected from dengue patients as early as three to five days after the onset of fever and generally persist for 30 - 90 days, although detectable levels may be present eight months post-infection.
The IgM cut-off is set to detect IgM levels characteristic of current dengue infection.

This data has been extracted from the Dengue IgM Capture and Dengue IgG Capture ELISA Instructions for Use.
Samples positive for secondary dengue infection by HAI (titre >= 2560)
The use of the Panbio Dengue IgG Capture ELISA (E-DEN02G) is recommended when secondary dengue is suspected
