Mosquito-Borne Diseases

Mosquito-borne diseases (MBDs) cause significant morbidity and mortality worldwide. Collectively, mosquitoes cause more than 830,000 deaths annually, earning them the title of the world’s deadliest animal.1

At Mayo Medical Laboratories, we offer a comprehensive menu of individually orderable tests and panels for MBDs. Additionally, our algorithmic approach to MBD testing helps guide our testing to reduce costs and optimize patient care.
