Infectious Bronchitis Virus (IBV)

ID Gene™ Infectious Bronchitis Duplex


RT-qPCR for the qualitative detection of avian coronaviruses (including all IBV variants and coronaviruses isolated from turkeys, pheasants and pigeons) in swabs, organs, or nucleic acid storage cards

The test amplifies a target sequence as well as an exogenous control.
The kit includes a positive amplification control (PAC).
A standardized, freeze-dried positive extraction control to monitor variations in analytical sensitivity is sold separately (product code : PEC-IBV).





  • Accurate and reliable results
    • DLPCR < 12.5 copies / PCR
    • Includes an exogenous internal control, extracted with field samples, to evaluate extraction efficiency and confirm the absence of inhibitors
    • Detects avian coronaviruses, including all variants of all IBV strains (02, 4/91, Arkansas, D1466 QX, D181, IB80, It02, Massachusetts, Q1, QX…) and coronaviruses isolated from turkeys, pheasants and pigeons
  • Allows for optimized workflow
    • Rapid, 1 hour amplification protocol
    • Ready-to-use: simply dispatch the reaction mix, add the sample and run the test
  • Flexible and convenient
    • The kit is also validated on nucleic acid storage cards
    • 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
