|Description:||Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever Virus - Crimean–Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF) is a widespread tick-borne viral disease, a zoonosis of domestic animals and wild animals, that may affect humans. The pathogenic virus, especially common in East and West Africa, is a member of the Bunyaviridae family of RNA viruses. Clinical disease is rare in infected mammals, but it is commonly severe in infected humans, with a 30% mortality rate. Ixodid (hard) ticks, especially those of the genus, Hyalomma, are both a reservoir and a vector for the CCHF virus. Numerous wild and domestic animals, such as cattle, goats, sheep and hares, serve as amplifying hosts for the virus. Transmission to humans occurs through contact with infected animal blood or ticks or from one infected human to another by contact with infectious blood or body fluids. Documented spread of CCHF has also occurred in hospitals due to improper sterilization of medical equipment or contamination of medical supplies. AmpliSens® CCHFV-FRT PCR kit is an in vitro nucleic acid amplification test for qualitative detection of Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever virus (CCHFV) RNA in clinical material (blood plasma and serum) and ticks using real-time hybridization-fluorescence detection of amplified products.|
