will benefit people throughout the world.”

First isolated in the 1950s, chikungunya virus has been responsible for numerous outbreaks in Africa and Asia and more recently in parts of Europe. Once the CTK-SRI chikungunya test is developed and distributed, it will provide an important and low-cost public health tool that may help limit the spread of the disease to other regions. CTK Biotech and SRI will also work to develop diagnostics for other diseases.
