- TBE Assays



The rapidSTRIPE TBE Assay is a ready-to-use kit for fast, sensitive detection of tick-borne encephalitis (TBE), including conclusive identification of European and Far-Eastern viral strains. The kit contains reagents for cDNA synthesis, the combined amplification/ hybridization reaction (using a thermal cycler) and materials for final visualization on a Lateral Flow Strip (LFS). Analytik Jena also offers an extraction kit in its blackPREP product line that isolates tick DNA and RNA in parallel. This means that one sample can be tested both for TBE viral RNA as well as for DNA from bacterial pathogens such as Borrelia, Rickettsia, Anaplasma and Babesia.

  • Assay for specific, sensitive detection of TBE in ticks
  • Detects European (FSME) as well as Far-Eastern (RSSEV) TBEV strains
  • Ready-to-use kit for cDNA synthesis, amplification, hybridization and final detection
  • Contains all of the necessary consumables and reagents

Detection time:

Approx. 10 -  20 minutes
