VDL offers turkey Reovirus panel

January 10, 2018

This panel includes a turkey-specific qPCR (will not detect chicken Reovirus) and 2 types of viral isolation (using egg inoculation and cell lines). We expect to isolate virus from any sample with an initial positive PCR result. An initial negative PCR result, however, will require confirmation via isolation results to be confident in the results of the assay.

Turkey Reovirus (TRV) isolation may be requested independently, but any request for TRV PCR will also include viral isolation (at the panel price of $115).
