ViroReal® Bovine Coronavirus


ViroReal Bovine CoronavirusViroReal Assay FAM VET RNA mit Gefahrensymbol



Background: Bovine coronavirus (BCoV) is a member of the genus Coronavirus (Betacoronavirus), family Coronaviridae. The BCoV virion is enveloped and spherical in shape. The genome is a single-stranded, positive-sense RNA molecule. BCoV causes diarrhea in adult cattle (Winter Dysentery) and wild ruminants, as well as enteric and respiratory diseases in calves. Winter Dysentery is characterized by high morbidity (50-100%) and low mortality (1-2%), the highest incidence is between November and April when cattle are kept in close confinement. In calves morbidity and mortality are high. BCoV has been found in cattle worldwide.

ViroReal® Bovine Coronavirus is a detection assay for rapid and sensitive detection of RNA of bovine coronavirus (BCoV) by reverse transcription real-time PCR.

Specificity and sensitivity: See product description

Also available as kitversion: ViroReal® Kit Bovine Coronavirus
