Bluetongue virus (BTV)

ID Gene™ Bluetongue Duplex


Real-time RT-qPCR for the qualitative detection of all serotypes of the Bluetongue virus in ruminant blood samples

The test amplifies:

  • a target sequence
  • an endogenous internal control, to ascertain presence and correct conservation of the sample

The only commercial BTV PCR which includes a target positive control*:

  • to be extracted along with field samples in order to evaluate extraction efficiency;
  • calibrated at between 10 and 100 times the method detection limit in order to monitor variations in analytical sensitivity.

*The target positive control consists of inactivated BTV, diluted in a virus-negative whole blood matrix, freeze-dried and calibrated at between 10 and 100 times the detection limit of the method (MDL).




  • High performance: DLPCR< 10 copies / PCR and specificity of 100%.
  • Rapid: 1 hour amplification protocol
  • Ready-to-use: no-need for reagent pre-mixing – simply dispatch the reaction mix, add the sample and run the test
  • Flexible : uses the same amplification protocol common to all ID Gene™ PCR tests, meaning that other pathogens (DNA or RNA) may be tested on the same plate
  • Validated by the French national reference laboratory and according to the French standard NFU47-600-2.
