Bluetongue is an insect-borne disease of domestic and wild ruminants that requires strict monitoring by sensitive, reproducible and robust methods. Real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR) analysis has become the method of choice for routine viral diagnosis. As false-negative test results can have serious implications; an internal/external control system should be incorporated in each analysis to detect RT-qPCR failure due to poor sample quality, improper nucleic acid extraction and/or PCR inhibition. To increase the diagnostic capacity and reduce costs, it is rec…
