WNV Detection Kits

West Nile Virus (WNV) belongs to the RNA virus family of Flaviviridae. It is known to spread primarily through arthropod vectors such as mosquitoes. The virus infects mainly birds but is also reported to infect humans as well as pets such as cats and dogs. In humans, the majority of the infections caused by WNV are asymptomatic. However, some individuals (the majority of the confirmed cases) could enter a second, febrile stage with flu-like symptoms – commonly known as West Nile Fever. In a more serious stage, the disease becomes neuroinvasive, causing meningitis or encephalitis. Such severe conditions could lead to mortality. As the symptoms of WNV are very similar to other common diseases but can be fatal at a severe stage, it is important to distinguish the virus early in the diagnosis, particularly at the molecular level.

There are 2 kits available for the detection of WNV:

WNV TaqMan PCR/RT-PCR Kit, 24 reactions
  • Ready to use format, including Master Mix for the target and PCR control to monitor for PCR inhibition and validate the quality
  • Specific Primer and Probe mix for the pathogen/virus/viroid of interest
  • Primer and Probe mix
  • Positive and negative control to confirm the integrity of the kit reagents
WNV TaqMan PCR/RT-PCR Probe/Primer Set and Controls, 100 reactions
  • Specific Primer/Probe mix and Positive Control for the pathogen/virus/viroid of interest
  • Nuclease-free water
  • Can be used together with Norgen’s PCR/RT-PCR Master Mix (#28007/#28113)or customer supplied master mix

Click to expand options
WNV End-Point PCR/RT-PCR Kit, 24 reactions
  • Ready to use format, including Master Mix for the target and PCR control to monitor for PCR inhibition and validate the quality
  • Specific Primer mix for the pathogen/virus/viroid of interest
  • Positive control and a negative control to confirm the integrity of the kit reagents
  • Loading dye and a DNA ladder to facilitate qualitative analysis of the results on an agarose gel
WNV End-Point PCR/RT-PCR Primer Set and Controls, 100 reactions
  • Specific Primer mix and Positive Control for the pathogen/virus/viroid of interest
  • Nuclease-free water
  • Can be used together with Norgen’s PCR/RT-PCR Master Mix (#28007/#28113)or customer supplied master mix

Storage Conditions and Product Stability
All kit components should be stored at -20°C upon arrival. Repeated thawing and freezing (> 2 x) of the Master Mix, Control Master Mix and Positive Control should be avoided, as this may affect the performance of the assay. If the reagents are to be used only intermittently, they should be frozen in aliquots. All reagents can be stored for 1 year at -20°C without showing any reduction in performance.
