Why is it that “Dengue virus 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 RNA” (CSF) uses ampersands (&) but “Dengue virus 1+2+3+4 RNA” (Ser) uses plus signs (+)?
(Noted that “&” indicates analytes measured separately while “+” indicates analytes measured as one quantity) (Also noted that the CSF test has a property of “Threshold” while the Ser test has a property of “ACnc”)
Dengue virus is the cause of dengue fever. It is a mosquito-borne single positive-stranded RNA virus of the family Flaviviridae; genus Flavivirus. Five serotypes of the virus have been found, all of which can cause the full spectrum of disease. Thanks , 🙂 _______________________________ 3D Floor Plan
