This study has evaluated the performance of a rapid immunochromatographic test (ICT) device in detecting antibodies to Dengue virus (DENV) in a tertiary hospital in South India. Sera from hospital attendees, with requests for DENV antibody testing, were tested with the Panbio Dengue Duo Cassette and a reference antibody capture assay for the detection of IgM (Dengue IgM capture ELISA-National Institute of Virology, India) and IgG (Dengue IgG capture ELISA-Panbio Diagnostics Inc., Australia) antibodies. The ICT results were compared with results of antibody capture tests for the detection of the IgM and IgG antibodies, respectively. Accuracy indices for IgM and IgG detection, respectively were - sensitivity 81.8% and 87.5%, specificity 75.0%, and 66.6%, positive predictive value (PPV) 61.0% and 72.9% and negative predictive value (NPV) 89.6% and 83.9%. The device performs poorly in detection of IgM and IgG antibodies to DENVs and is not recommended for use as a stand-alone diagnostic test.
