ID Gene™ Bluetongue genotypes 8 and 4 Triplex

A real-time RT-PCR detection kit allowing for the detection of BTV 8 and 4 genotypes.

  • This kit is a qualitative triplex test. It simultaneously amplifies target RNA from BTV8 and BTV4 viruses and an endogenous internal control.
  • The kit contains a target positive control (TPC-BTV8-4) which is to be extracted in the same conditions as the samples to validate the extraction and amplification of the targets.
  • This kit may be used to test ruminant whole blood collected in EDTA or organ (spleen) samples.

Other features:

  • Compatible with most extraction systems (magnetic beads, silica columns) and with all thermocyclers
  • Validated by the French national reference laboratory and according to the French standard NFU47-600-2
  • Ready-to-use reagents mean that the amplification reaction mix contains all the primers, probes and master mix required to run the qPCR
