Laboratory Confirmation of Dengue

Finally, the plaque reduction and neutralization assay, the PRNT assay, is the most specific serologic tool for the detection of dengue.

This test will subtype dengue infections, and measures titer of neutralizing antibodies. It is labor intensive and requires maintenance of very specific cell lines, thus it is primarily limited to research laboratories and certain state health departments. The CDC website listed on the slide gives a up-to-date overview of available dengue tests, which you may find helpful.
