Rabbit hemorrhagic disease (RHD) is an acute, highly contagious and fatal disease of the European rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus), caused by a calicivirus (genus Lagovirus).

Infection can occur by nasal, conjunctival or orally. RHD transmission is facilitated by the high stability of the virus in the environment. The incubation period ranges from 1 to 3 days, and the death usually occurs 12-36 hours after the onset of fever.

Recent a “new variant” virus (RHDVb) which affects Young rabbits and farmed adult animals previously immunized with vaccines against “classic” RHDV has been detected. CerTest RHDV + RHDVb is based on the principle of a qualitative immunocrhomatographic assay for the determination of the “classic” and the “new variant” virions of rabbit hemorrhagic disease virus in rabbit tissues samples.
