NNV One-Step Rapid Kit


PCR is  a sensitive molecular detection method for screening and detection of  NNV, a nodavirus  in commercially important fish species.   This requires a proper laboratory set-up, train lab technician and process requires 3-4 hours.


The NNV One-Step Rapid Kit is a Lateral Flow Device (LFD) based on viral antigen capture immunoassay. It is a simple, specific and rapid detection device. The antibody used detects  four (4) major nodavirus genotypes  RGNNV, SJNNV, TPNNV and BFNNV.  No extensive laboratory or training needed. Used on site for presumptive detection of NNV. Results in 40 minutes

Nodavirus infects many important fish species such as Grouper (Ephinephelus spp) , Barramundi (Asia Seabass Lates calcarifer),  Sea Bass (Dicentrarchus  lavrax), StripedJack (Pseudocaranx dentex) and others. The nodavirus  causes Viral Nervous Necrosis (VNN)  or  Viral Encephalopathy and Retinopathy (VER). The demands for  commercial fry to stock  farms  is increasing as  mariculture sector  grows and, export of fish.  Systems and detection tools must be in place to monitor movement within and across countries.    LIR Biotech  can offer  RT-PCR detection services and also NNV One-Step Rapid Kit.
