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 of up to 100).

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: negative blood sample spiked with cell culture lysat of a related pestivirus (freeze-dried).

ID Gene™ Easy preparation for Ear Notch Samples
Product code EZNOTCH
Format 500 preps

Direct lysis extraction kit for ear notch samples for use prior to testing for BVDV by qPCR (individual samples or pools of up to 100).


⇒ Use in combination with IDBVD: ID Gene™ BVD/BD Triplex PCR kit.



  • Rapid and easy-to-use as no extraction step is required
  • The target positive control (TPC-EN-BVD) and the non-target positive control (NTPC-EN-BVD) are included in the kit. These controls are to be extracted in the same manner as the samples to evaluate extraction efficiency and to detect the presence of PCR inhibitors.
