Equine Herpesvirus 1 (EHV-1) PCR - EHV1PCR

Sample Details: 1) EDTA blood (min. 2 mL); 2) nasopharyngeal swab; 3) tracheal wash (min. 10 mL); 4) tissues, min. 2g (lung, liver, spleen, myocardium, placenta, fetus); 5) CSF (Cerebral Spinal Fluid)
Cost/Fee: $36.75

Submit swabs in sterile, sealed vials with several drops of saline added, to prevent desiccation. Bacterial transport media are not appropriate for PCR assays. If culture is desired, submit a separate swab in an acceptable bacterial transport media. Cotton, plastic, wood-handled, and Dacron and other synthetic swabs are all acceptable for PCR-based assays. Calcium alginate swabs should be avoided.  For add'l info on submitting samples for virus isolation, see Transport Media for Diagnostic Sampling.

Stat processing is available for individual blood, serum or plasma samples. A $50 fee will be charged for each stat sample tested. Samples arriving before 12pm will be reported out by 5pm the same day. Samples arriving after 12pm, will be reported by 1pm the next day.

In addition, if EHV-1 is detected, you can request Equine Herpes Virus 1 Neurological Genotyping to determine if the infecting strain has the "neurotropic" mutation. That will also incur a separate fee.

This service is performed pursuant to an agreement with Roche Molecular Systems.
