The Chikungunya virus is commonly transmitted to humans by mosquitos. Typically after biting a rodent or bird and then a person, the virus is spread. When contracted, symptoms may include fever, muscle and joint pain, and rash. Symptoms may last up to a week, but do not often lead to long term illness. ZeptoMetrix stocks a full inventory of Chikungunya lysate or culture fluid for your convenience. The Chikungunya virus is considered a Biosafety Level 3 organism and is not for use in humans. Products are for research and development use only. Orders for live microorganisms from ZeptoMetrix require a valid MTA. CCL permit also required for international orders.
