IQ Plus Irido-M Kit



Irido-Megalocytiviruses such as infectious spleen and kidney necrosis virus (ISKNV) and red sea bream iridovirus (RSIV), have caused ecological and economic impacts on marine fish farming in recent years. Pathogenic Megalocytiviruses were isolated from diseased grouper (Epinephelus hybrid), giant seaperch (Lates calcarifer), largemouth bass (Micropterum salmoides), king grouper (Epinephelus lanceolatus), spotted butter fish (Scatophagus argus), yellow-wax pomfrat (Trachinotus blochii), goldlined seabream (Sparus sarba), humpback grouper (Chromileptes altivelis) and Mangrove red snapper (Lutjanus argentimaculatus). The virus causes mass mortality in cultured grouper fry.

PCR technique has been commonly employed in the aquaculture industry for disease diagnosis and prevention. But building up a PCR lab is expensive and technician required. These make PCR detection limited in big farms. In order to provide pond-side PCR detection system for everyone in need, we introduced an innovative system - IQ Plus into the market. IQ Plus system using a new technology - insulated isothermal PCR (iiPCR), which is a compact and portable system and can detect Irido-Megalocytiviruses within 1 hour. The extraction procedure has been simplified to an easy way for everyone can easily perform the assay. IQ Plus system would be a useful tool for aquaculture pathogen detection and prevention anytime anywhere.
