The GaHV-2dtec-qPCR comprises a series of species-specific targeted reagents designed for detection of Gallid herpesvirus 2 species by using qPCR. Gallid herpesvirus 2 (or Marek’s disease virus; MDV) is a DNA virus of Herpesviridae family. GaHV-2 is responsible of Marek’s disease, a highly contagious viral neoplastic disease in chickens. The route of infection is usually respiratory and the disease is highly contagious being spread by infective feather-follicle dander, fomites, etc. Infected birds remain viraemic for life. Diagnosis in poultry is complicated due to multiple etiological agents capable of causing very similar tumors.
