    Two new tests have been created recently, unfortunately they are not yet commercially available:

    ViroCap: New test detects all viruses that infect people, animals

    VirCapSeq: Diagnostics Breakthrough Brings Viral Sequencing to Doctors’ Toolkit
    https://www.mailman.columbia.edu/pu...uencing-doctors’-toolkit#sthash.nRjCDqdB.dpuf

    I already wrote regarding the second one and unfortunately only got this as an answer "VirCapSeq is not yet available commercially. We do run assays on a research basis when physicians send us samples for analysis"

    Very good news from Lipkin and his research group!
    Hope there will be a similar "net" to catch bacterias in, in a near future.

    Note that this is Ian Lipkin's department, and it's their invention.
    Hope Ian Lipkin is running some ME/CFS samples through it!
