Equine Rhinitis Virus B PCR - ERHB


Sample Details: Nasal (NASCF) or oropharyngeal (ORAPH) swabs collected from horses with respiratory disease signs. In the absence of viral transport medium, submit swabs in sterile, sealed vials with several drops of saline added, to prevent desiccation. Bacterial transport media are not appropriate. Cotton, plastic, wood-handled, and Dacron and other synthetic swabs are all acceptable. Calcium alginate swabs should be avoided. Nasopharyngeal wash (NPW) and tracheal wash (TW) samples may also be appropriate respiratory samples.
Cost/Fee: $36.75
Comment: This is a new test to detect ERBV which may be identified in horses during outbreaks of acute respiratory disease.

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.

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