Epidemics caused by the re-emergence of Zika virus (ZIKV) warrant the need to develop new diagnostic measures to complement currently used detection methods. In this study, the authors explored the detection of ZIKV antigen in a defined leukocyte subset from patients’ whole-blood specimens. Their data highlight an alternative approach in using flow cytometry as a sensitive method for detecting ZIKV antigen in whole blood.
