Subject: Triplex PCR test to detect EHV-1 and EHV-4

Dear Stakeholders,

The AHDL is excited to announce availability of a triplex PCR test to simultaneously detect EHV-1 and EHV-4. The test is also able to differentiate between respiratory and neurologic strains of the EHV-1. Samples submitted to the AHDL for EHV-1 and EHV-4 testing will be tested using the triplex PCR. The triplex PCR will replace current test. The test fee remains same: $50.

Please call the AHDL (609)406-6999 or email jerseyvetlab@ag.nj.gov with any questions.

Thank you for being a valued client.
