Turkish Scientists Developed a PCR Diagnostic Kit for Monkeypox

Near East University researchers developed a PCR Diagnostic Kit that can detect Monkeypox disease in 19 hour after COVID-1. Monkey pox, declared a "global emergency" by the World Health Organization, continues to cause concern. The disease, which is declared to have a very low risk of creating a pandemic compared to COVID-19, still needs to take the necessary precautions. One of these measures is the development of a PCR Diagnostic Kit.

Near East University scientists, who gained significant experience with the scientific studies they carried out, especially the local PCR Diagnosis and Variant Kit developed during the COVID-19 process, have also come a long way in their research on monkeypox. Near East University researchers also developed a PCR Diagnostic Kit to detect monkeypox after COVID-19. With the Monkey Flower PCR Diagnostic Kit developed within the body of the Near East University, the diagnosis of the disease can be made within 1 hour.

Near East University, which is preparing to apply to the Ministry of Health of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus for the use and production permits of the kit, plans to start production after the necessary permissions and to produce the diagnostic kits that the TRNC will need in possible cases of monkeypox.

Near East University Acting Rector Prof. Dr. Tamer Şanlıdağ: “With the experience we have gained during the COVID-19 process, we are ready to meet the needs of our country and society in a possible monkeypox epidemic.

We will continue to work and produce for public health with all the facilities we have, especially our fully equipped laboratories such as Kit Production Laboratory and Genome Analysis Laboratory operating within our university."

Near East University Hospital Medical Genetics Laboratory Supervisor Assoc. Dr. Mahmut Çerkez Ergören: “With the PCR Diagnostic Kit we designed, we can diagnose monkeypox within 1 hour.

We have implemented the PCR Diagnostic Kit for Monkeypox virus by working hard with the same discipline. We are proud to be the team that has broken new ground once again," he said.
