One of these isolated molecules is called dansylglycine (or 2-[[5-(dimethylamino)naphthalen-1-yl]sulfonylamino] acetic acid) which has interesting properties as a colored molecule and as a fluorescent dye in water and dioxane, and we believe that it could be of interest to study their molecular reactivity by using the ideas of conceptual DFT [1-5], in the same way of our previous works [6-10].
To overcome this challenge, SeraCare has developed the AccuSet Zika Performance Panel, which is a comprehensive ten-member panel consisting of patient samples demonstrating a range of reactivity for Zika IgM antibodies, and assessed for cross-reactivity to dengue and chikungunya.
