Arthropod Vector Rapid Detection Devices - Instructional Videos 

Instructional video clips for malaria, Leishmaniasis, and dengue kits

Arthropod Vector Rapid Detection (AV-RDD) kits are hand-held assays that can be used to determine whether arthropods are infected with pathogens capable of infecting deployed personnel.  Video instructions on procedures for the Malaria Detection Kit (MAL-K020), Leishmania Antigen Assay Kit (P/N LMAJ-K020), and Dengue Kit were prepared by the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research (WRAIR) and the U.S. Army Medical Materiel Development Activity (USAMMDA) staff.  These instructional videos can be accessed on the USAMMDA YouTube site at http://www.youtube.com/user/USAMMDA external link or by clicking on the links below:
