Description: Canine distemper virus (CDV) is an RNA virus that affects a wide variety of mammal families, including domestic and wild species of dogs, coyotes, foxes and wolves. This virus is highly contagious via inhalation and in canines affects several body systems, including the gastrointestinal and respiratory tracts, the spinal cord, and the brain. Canine Distemper virus RT-qPCR Kit is designed for the in vitro detection of CDV genomes. The kit is built to have the broadest possible detection profile whilst remaining specific to CDV. Thus, this kit has been designed for the specific (inclusivity) and exclusive (exclusivity) in vitro detection of this species. The primers and probe sequences have very high (>95%) homology with a broad range of CDV genomes based on a comprehensive bioinformatic analysis with all reference data within the NCBI database at the time of design. Due to the inherent instability of RNA viral genomes, it is not possible to guarantee the detection of all clinical isolates. If required, a complementary kit for the detection of an endogenous gene of the species from which samples are being extracted is available for purchase (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 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.
