Abstract

Although Hendra and Nipah viruses emerged to cause novel zoonotic infections only recently, there now exists a strong but poorly documented diagnostic capability for both. This review gives an overview of the development of the tests, the tests currently recommended, their shortcomings and the perceived priorities for needed test improvements.
