    1 ) Adeno Virus

Reptile .
Clinical Signs
Turtles/tortoises: Anorexia, oral lesions, diarrhea
Lizards: Enteritis, hepatitis
Snakes: : Enteritis, hepatitis

Adenoviruses are mostly found in lizards and snakes, but have also been detected in turtles and tortoises. In these animals, infections have been associated with anorexia, oral lesions, and diarrhea. Adenoviruses can be detected in cloacal swabs in live animals and in liver and intestine of dead animals via PCR.

Our PCR detects adenoviruses of the genus Atadenovirus (mostly detected in different species of snakes and lizards, but also in tortoises) and also of the genus Testadenovirus (it is the proposed name for Adenoviruses found in different tortoise and turtle species).

Sample Requirements
swab (cloaca or pharynx), tracheal lavage, tissue (e.g. intestine or liver)
1-2 weeks

    2 ) Irido Virus ( Invertebrate iridoviruses / IIV)

Lizard .
Clinical Signs
Skin lesions, emaciation, sudden death

Invertebrate iridoviruses (IIV) are mostly found in insects. They are also regularly detected in lizards, where they may cause skin lesions. IIV detection may be of interest in cases in which increased mortality is noted in feed insect colonies or in lizard collections. Skin or liver can be used as samples for virus detection. In feed animals (e.g. crickets), the whole body is used for virus detection.

Sample Requirements
Skin biopsy, liver, skin, swab (skin), feed insects
1-2 weeks

    3 ) Rana Virus

Amphibians , Fish , Reptile .
Clinical Signs
Snakes: Hepatitis, stomatitis
Chelonian:Stomatitis, hepatitis
Lizards: Hepatitis, skin lesions


Ranaviruses are found in snakes as well as in turtles and tortoises and lizards. They are associated with granulomatous lesions in the liver and the oral cavity. Virus detection is carried out from oral swabs or liver samples.


Ranaviruses are important pathogens in amphibians. In recent years, they have also been increasingly found in reptiles. They have been detected in turtles and tortoises, lizards, and snakes. In chelonians, they can cause stomatitis, hepatitis, and sudden death. The detection of ranaviruses in live animals can be carried out using oral swabs or blood. In dead animals, liver, tongue, and skin have been successfully used for virus detection


Ranaviruses are seen in lizards with skin lesions, hepatitis, and sudden death. Virus detection in live animals is carried out using oral swabs or skin. In dead animals, the liver, tongue, and skin can be used.

Sample Requirements
Snakes:Oral and cloacal swabs, liver
Chelonian: Oral and cloacal swabs, blood, tongue, liver
Lizards: Oral and cloacal swabs, skin, liver
Fish: biopsy (gills), blood, tissue (e.g. Liver or kidney), swab (skin)
1-2 weeks

    4 ) Mycology (dermatophytes and yeasts)

Reptile .
Swab with medium, Tissue
1-2 weeks
