Quantitative Honey Bee Pathogen Panel

The Quantitative Honey Bee Pathogen Panel is currently offered to consumers on a fee for service basis. This test panel was developed by NAGC as a tool used to screen for the health of honey bees. NAGC’s quantitative pathogen panel is specific for the following 15 pathogens:  Acute Bee Paralysis Virus (ABPV), American Foulbrood (AFB), Black Queen Cell Virus (BQCV), Chronic Bee Paralysis Virus (CBPV), Deformed Wing Virus (DWV), European Foulbrood (EFB), Israeli Acute Bee Paralysis Virus (IABPV), Kashmir Bee Virus (KBV), Lake Sinai Virus 1 (LSV1), Lake Sinai Virus 2 (LSV2), Nosema apis (Napis), Nosema ceranae (Ncern), Slow Bee Paralysis Virus (SBPV), Sacbrood Virus (SBV), and Varroa Destructor Virus (VDV1). This multi-target panel has been shown to be highly specific for each target using the unique DNA sequence from each pathogen. In addition to the cost savings, the utilization of a multiplex panel shortens the turnaround time which, in turn, heightens the throughput capacity of the laboratory.

This project was funded by the National Corn Growers Association and the North Dakota Department of Agriculture.
