Schmallenberg Virus (SBV)

ID Gene™ Schmallenberg Duplex


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

The test amplifies:

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

It is the only commercial SBV PCR to include a 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. This control is cablirated at between 10 and 100 times the MDL (method detection limit) in order to monitor variations in analytical sensitivity. It consists of 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).




  • 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
  • Reliable: 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
