The CHV1 dtec-qPCR comprises a series of species-specific targeted reagents designed for Canine herpesvirus 1 detection by using qPCR. Canine herpesvirus is a virus of the genus Varicellovirus in the family Herpesviridae. It is one of the leading causes of death in newborn puppies (and wild Canidae) less than two to three weeks old. Canine herpesvirus is transmitted to puppies in the birth canal and by contact with infected oral and nasal secretions from the mother or other infected dogs. There is a high mortality rate, approaching 80 percent in puppies less than one week old. Once the above signs develop, death often occurs in 24-48 hours. In adult dogs, typically the virus infects the reproductive tract, which allows it to be sexually transmitted or passed to puppies during birth. The disease can cause abortion, stillbirths, and infertility.
