ViroReal® Kit Bovine Torovirus

qPCR / Real Time PCR/ PCR
100 or 50 reactions

Background: The species bovine torovirus (BToV) is a member of the family Coronaviridae, subfamily Torovirinae. The genome is a single-stranded, positive-sense RNA molecule. The kidney-shaped BToV causes diarrhea in calves but respiratory infections have also been reported and it has a worldwide distribution. Bovine torovirus, formerly called breda virus (BRV), was originally isolated from diarrheic calves in Breda, Iowa, in 1979.

Description: ViroReal® Kit Bovine Torovirus uses one-step reverse transcription RT real-time PCR for the detection of the membrane protein (M) gene of the BToV. Our carefully designed primers and probe ensure highest sensitivity and specificity. The kit consists of an assay mix for the detection of the pathogen as well as a positive control and an internal positive control (IPC). Reverse transcription and PCR can be performed in one reaction well.
