Tomato brown rugose fruit virus (ToBRFV)

Real-Time PCR

Tomato brown rugose fruit virus (ToBRFV)
Taxonomic group:


Tomato brown rugose fruit virus (ToBRFV)
Type of detection:
Type of test:
Molecular test
Type of method:
Real-Time PCR
Description of the test:
The qPCR ToBRFV set enables the detection of Tomato brown rugose fruit virus (ToBRFV) with a triplex real-time RT-PCR. Viral RNA of ToBRFV, extracted from tomato or pepper samples, is amplified with two distinct primer pairs in a one-step RT-PCR reaction.
Type of sample:
Leaves; seeds; fruits
Number of target:
Tomato brown rugose fruit virus (ToBRFV)
Available extraction method:
For the extraction of RNA it is recommended to use standard RNA extraction protocols established for plant material. Upon request, BIOREBA can recommend an optimal extraction method.
Available extraction method PDF:
The qPCR ToBRFV set is validated for the simultaneous detection (multiplex) of tomato brown rugose fruit virus (ToBRFV) and a cytochrome oxidase (COX) gene sequence which serves as internal positive control (IPC) by one-step real- time RTPCR. Suitable tissues are tomato/pepper leaves, seeds and fruit samples. Samples of up to 1000 seeds can be pooled for RNA extraction and analyzed according to this qPCR protocol.
