The EIAV dtec-RT-qPCR comprises a series of species-specific targeted reagents designed for detection of Equine influenza type A virus by using qPCR. Equine influenza (EI) is caused by type A influenza virus (IVA) belonging to the genus Influenzavirus A of the family Orthomyxoviridae. EI is a severe respiratory disease of horses with high morbidity and low mortality. The disease has a nearly 100% infection rate in an unvaccinated horse population with no prior exposure to the virus. While equine influenza is historically not known to affect humans, the impact of an outbreak would have been devastating.
