This assay targets the RNA of a portion of the NS1 from the Epizootic hemorrhagic disease (EHD) virus. This assay detects representatives of at least 7 known serotypes of EHD; however, serotypes cannot be differentiated and evidence suggests that not all sequence variants of all serotypes may be efficiently detected with this assay.
