Detection of ZIKV from infected blood-fed (IBF) mosquitoes. Total RNA from ZIKV-infected (PRVABC59 strain) whole mosquitoes were extracted 7 days post-infection, and used as template for RT-qPCR reactions, using NS5-2362F/NS5-2457R primers and 1107-FAM probe. The absolute quantification of ZIKV RNA in mosquito samples was obtained using a standard curve constructed from in vitro transcribed RNA
