New FTD CCHFV kit launched

Pathogen Information

Crimean Congo haemorrhagic fever virus (CCHFV) is a tick-borne virus of the Bunyaviridae family. The virus is endemic in Africa, the Balkans and the Middle East and Asia. The transmission occurs via bites from infected ticks or via human-to-human by close contact with blood, secretions or body fluids. After an incubation period of one to three days (five to six day after human-to-human infection) the onset of fever, myalgia, stiffness, headache, sore eyes and photophobia happens. It can also be combined with tachycardia, lymphadenopathy and a petechial rash. The mortality rate is about 30%.

The kit

  • A one tube multiplex real-time PCR assay for detection of Crimean Congo haemorrhagic fever virus and internal control.
