Primary Varicella-Zoster-Virus VZV infection causes chicken-pox in children and serious complications of shingles include postherpetic neuralgia, zoster multiplex, myelitis, herpes ophthalmicus, or zoster sine herpete in adults and rarely in children. In about 10 – 20 % of the cases, VZV reactivates later in life. It more commonly occurs in people over age 50, and in those who have a weakened immune system.

Sample Material

  • Epithelial cell swabs
  • Tissue fluid from erosive-ulcerative skin lesions and mucosa
  • Urine, saliva,
  • Blood serum and plasma.

Detection Channels

  • FAM (495 – 520 nm) for Internal Control (IC)
  • ROX (575 – 602 nm) for Varicella-Zoster-Virus VZV DNA

For optimal results please always use the RealLine Internal Control. In case you do not use RealLine Extraction kits, order RealLine Internal Control (REF VBC8881) seperately.


In Str-format kits the Ready-Mastermix is lyophilized and prepared in 0.2 ml white tubes arranged in a plate. For the preparation the respective number of tubes can be easily cutted.  50 µl of extracted DNA/RNA have to be pipetted to the tubes, close the tubes with PCR- foil or caps and run the test. The tubes are regular-profile tubes and fit to RealLine Cyclers, Bio-Rad cyclers and others.
