Rift valley fever virus
The RVFV dtec-RT-qPCR comprises a series of species-specific targeted reagents designed for detection of all serotypes of Rift valley fever virus species by using qPCR. Rift valley fever virus belongs to the Bunyavirus family. This is a family of enveloped negative single stranded RNA viruses. RVFV is responsible of Rift valley fever, a viral zoonosis that primarily affects animals but also has the capacity to infect humans. Infection can cause severe disease in both animals and humans. The virus is transmitted through mosquito vectors, as well as through contact with the tissue of infected animals.Contact with infected tissue is considered to be the main source of human infections. In humans, the virus can cause several syndromes, from no symptoms or only mild illness to more severe effects which can lead to dead. The disease also results in significant economic losses due to death and abortion among RVF-infected livestock.
