The EDSV dtec-qPCR comprises a series of species-specific targeted reagents designed for detection of Egg drop syndrome virus by using qPCR. Egg drop syndrome is caused by duck adenovirus A, a member of the genus Atadenovirus and family Adenoviridae. This virus has also been known as duck adenovirus 1 (DAdV-1) egg drop syndrome (EDS) virus, egg-drop-syndrome-76 (EDS-76) virus andadenovirus 127. Egg drop syndrome, a viral disease of chickens and quail, is characterized by a decrease in egg production accompanied by a reduction in egg quality. This disease is primarily of economic importance, as the birds do not become ill. Egg drop syndrome was first described in chickens in the 1970s. Until recently, duck adenovirus A was thought to be avirulent in ducks and geese. However, in 2001, this virus was isolated from an outbreak of respiratory disease in young goslings, and the disease was reproduced by experimental infection of 1-day old birds.
