Bluetongue virus (BTV)

ID Gene® Bluetongue genotypes 8 and 4 Triplex


Real-time RT-qPCR detection kit allowing for the detection of BTV 8 and 4 genotypes in blood samples colected in EDTA or organ (spleen) samples

The test amplifies:

  • a target sequence
  • an endogenous internal control.





  • 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
  • Reliable : validated by the French national reference laboratory and according to the French standard NFU47-600-2
  • 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.
