The SBV dtec-RT-qPCR comprises a series of species-specific targeted reagents designed for detection of Schmallenberg virus by using qPCR. Schmallenberg virus (SBV) is the informal name given to a recently isolate dorthobunya virus, which has not been given a formal name as of January 2013, initially reported in November 2011 to cause congenital malformations and stillbirths in cattle, sheep, goats, and possibly alpaca. It appears to be transmitted bymidges (Culicoides spp.) which are likely to have been most active in causing the infection in the northern hemisphere summer and autumn of 2011. After Germany, it has also been detected in most countries of Europe. Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Egyptand,Mexico have all suspended imports of live cattle and sheep, along with embryos and semen from affected countries.
