Epizootic hemorrhagic disease virus


The EHDV dtec-RT-qPCR comprises a series of specific targeted reagents designed for Epizootic hemorrhagic disease virus detection by using qPCR. Epizootic hemorrhagic disease virus belongs to the Reoviridae family and it is the causing agent of the epizootic hemorrhagic disease. This highly pathogenic virus has the capability to infect a wide range of wild and domestic ruminants, with morbidity and mortality rates sometimes soaring up to 90 % in certain affected species. Transmission of this disease occurs through contact with blood of affected animals via a vector, the Culicoides midge. Since the virus infects endothelium, all tissues may be affected. While the virus is distributed globally, outbreaks are more commonly observed during the summer and autumn months, corresponding with peaks in the population of vector population.
