Technical Abstract: A real-time RT-PCR test for the detection of Avian Paramyxovirus type 1 (APMV-1) or Newcastle disease virus (NDV), has been developed, validated and implemented. Real-time RT-PCR, which involves the detection of a PCR product in real-time, is a rapid diagnostic method which offers a variety of advantages over virus isolation in embryonating chicken eggs, which is the current 'gold standard' for NDV detection. Speed is probably the most important advantage of the RRT-PCR technology as results may be obtained within three hours of sample collection, as opposed to virus isolation which takes a minimum of five days. The validation and application of this test will be discussed.
