ID Gene™ Schmallenberg Duplex

Real-time RT-PCR for the qualitative detection of the Schmallenberg virus in ruminant blood, serum and organ samples

 This qualitative duplex test simultaneously amplifies target RNA and an endogenous internal control in ruminant blood and serum samples.


It is the only commercial SBV PCR to include:

  • positive target control* to be extracted along with field samples in order 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:

  • High performance: DLPCR< 10 copies / PCR and specificity of 100%.
  • Validated using the German FLI and the French national reference laboratory panels, and according to the French standard NFU47-600-2.
  • Detects all SBV serotypes
  • Rapid 1 hour amplification protocol
  • 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
  • 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: inactivated SBV, diluted in a virus-negative serum matrix, freeze-dried and calibrated at between 10 and 100 times the detection limit of the method (MDL).
