ViroReal® Kit African Swine Fever Virus

Detection of DNA of the major capsid protein gene p72 of African Swine Fever Virus (ASFV) (FLI approved)

Background: African swine fever virus (ASFV) is the only member of the Asfarviridae family and is a large, double-stranded DNA virus, which replicates in the cytoplasm of infected cells. This virus is the causative agent of African swine fever, a haemorrhagic fever with high mortality rates in domestic pigs, European wild boar and American wild pigs. Its inapparently infected natural hosts (warthogs, bushpigs) act as reservoir hosts for ASFV in Africa. Soft ticks (Ornithodoros) likely act as a vector. ASFV is endemic to sub-Saharan Africa. In the last years outbreaks sporadically occurred also outside Africa.

Description: ViroReal® Kit ASF Virus uses real-time PCR for the detection of the major capsid protein gene p72 of ASFV. Our carefully designed primers and probe ensure highest sensitivity and specificity. The kit consists of an assay mix for the detection of the pathogen as well as a positive control and an internal positive control (IPC). To minimize PCR cross-contamination,the reaction mix included contains dUTP and uracil-N glycosylase (UNG).
