Description: Equid herpesvirus 1 (EHV-1) is a double-stranded DNA virus of the Herpesviridae family. The virus can spread through the air, contaminated equipment, clothing and hands, and can cause abortion, respiratory disease and occasionally neonatal mortality in horses. Equid herpesvirus 1 qPCR Kit is designed for the in vitro detection of EHV-1 genomes. The kit is built to have the broadest possible detection profile whilst remaining specific to EHV-1. Thus, this kit has been designed for the specific (inclusivity) and exclusive (exclusivity) in vitro detection of this virus. The primers and probe sequences have very high (>95%) homology with a broad range of EHV-1 genomes based on a comprehensive bioinformatic analysis with all reference data within the NCBI database. However, due to the inherent instability of viral genomes, it is not possible to guarantee detection of all clinical isolates. Other closely related virus are not detected. Real-time PCR detection methods have been used in several studies to identify EHV-1 genomes (Diallo I. S. et al 2006). If required, a complementary kit for the detection of an endogenous gene of the species from which samples are being extracted is available at NZYTech (see Vet, Food & Pharma). The complementary usage of an Endogenous Detection reaction provides a solid confirmation that nucleic acids were properly extracted from the selected biological matrix. If you require further information or have a specific question about the detection profile of this kit, please send an e-mail to info@nzytech.com and our scientific team will answer your question. This kit is designed to be used by trained users in a suitable molecular biology laboratory environment.
