The NiV dtec-RT-qPCR comprises a series of specific targeted reagents designed for Nipah virus detection by using qPCR. Nipah virus is a non-segmented, single-stranded, negative-sense RNA virus belonging to the Henipavirus genus in the family Paramyxoviridae. It is a newly emerging zoonosis that causes severe disease in both animals and humans. The natural host of the virus are fruit bats of the Pteropodidae Family. Nipah virus infection in humans has a range of clinical presentations, from asymptomatic infection to acute respiratory syndrome and fatal encephalitis. The virus is also capable of causing disease in pigs and other domestic animals as dogs, cats, goats, horses and sheep. There is no vaccine available for neither humans not animals. Transmission can be achieved directly animal-to-animal or indirectly through contact with infected fluids.
