1 IBR/BHV1 Detection Test

Infectious Bovine Rhinotracheitis IBR Test Kit

Bovine herpesvirus-1 (BHV-1), the causative agent of infectious bovine rhinotracheitis (IBR), is a major feedlot pathogen, which can cause substantial economic losses to the cattle industry. As BHV-1 can infect a number of tissues in the body, there are five distinct disease syndromes. In addition to causing respiratory disease, BHV-1 can cause conjunctivitis (red eye), infectious pustular vulvovaginitis or balanoposthitis (IPV; genital disease in both females and males), abortions, and encephalitis (brain infections). BoHV-1 is distributed worldwide. This virus may be transmitted via respiratory and venereal routes and by artificial insemination. Although all ages and breeds of cattle are susceptible to IBR, the disease is most common in calves over six months of age. Diagnosis of uncomplicated IBR can usually be made based on the clinical signs, pattern of onset and lesions. However, this diagnosis should be confirmed by laboratory tests. Molecular detection of BHV-1 by real-time PCR is more rapid, accurate and convenient method with quantitative result and high sample throughput.

VetScreen Kit Details to detect IBR-BHV1

The real time kit uses the fluorogenic probe based chemistry that uses the 5 ́ nuclease activity of Taq DNA polymerase and enables the detection of a specific PCR product as it accumulates during the PCR cycles. Our real-time PCR test is a duplex real-time PCR designed for specific detection of BHV-1 and internal control gene from nasal swab, semen and/or genital swab of bovine. A combination of validated primers, hydrolysis probes, and hot-start Taq DNA polymerase ensures that VetScreen IBR/BHV-1 detection kit lead to highly-specific and ultra-sensitive results.
