ID Gene™ BVD/BD Triplex

Real-time RT-PCR for the qualitative detection of all serotypes of the BVD / BD viruses in ruminant blood, serum, milk, organs and ear notch samples (individual samples and pools).

This qualitative triplex test simultaneously amplifies target RNA common to all BVDV/BDV serotypes, an endogenous internal control, and a non-target exogenous positive control.


It is the only commercial BVD PCR which includes:

  • positive target and non-target controls* to be extracted along with field samples to evaluate extraction efficiency and confirm the absence of inhibitors in each well;
  • a target positive control calibrated at between 10 and 100 times the MDL (method detection limit) in order to monitor variations in analytical sensitivity.

Other features:

  • Detects all BVD/BD serotypes
  • Rapid 1 hour amplification protocol
  • May also be used with direct lysis for ear notch samples (no extraction step required)
  • Compatible with most extraction systems (magnetic beads, silica columns) and with all thermocyclers
  • Uses the same extraction and amplification protocols common to all ID Gene PCR tests so that other pathogens (DNA or RNA) may be tested on the same plate
  • High performance:
    • DLPCR< 10 copies / PCR
    • DLMethod 10DICT50/mL
    • Specificity of 100%.
  • 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.

* Target Positive Control (TPC) included in the kit: naturally-infected, freeze-dried field sample (a freeze-dried blood or ear notch sample).

* Non-Target exogenous Positive Control (NTPC) included in the kit: non-pathogenic inactivated viral strain.
