When you are located in a dengue hotspot or suspect that you might have contracted dengue, a quick and reliable test kit will offer results for your peace of mind.

What we will need:

1. We will draw some blood to test for three antibodies to dengue (NS1, IgM and IgG); 

NS 1: For very early dengue infection. Detectable from around 24 hours mark. Peaks within 4 to 5 days. Present for about 7 to 10 days.

IgM: For early dengue infection. Detectable from around day 3 to 7. Can be present for up to 6 months or longer. 

IgG: For previous dengue infection. To detect secondary dengue infection in new cases (higher risk of complications).

By testing all 3 antibodies, the test kit is comprehensive enough to catch dengue at all stages.

2. Approximately 30 minutes of your time as you await results

3. A quick consultation with the doctor, if necessary

 

This one-time use kit costs only $35, excluding consultation.

It is currently available at the following Frontier clinics:

- Frontier Medical Associates (Admiralty)

- Frontier Medical Associates (Woodlands)
