ViroReal® Kit classical swine fewer (CSF) Virus

DVEV02311
qPCR / Real Time PCR/ PCR
Ingenetix
100 or 50 reactions

Background: The CSF (classical swine fever virus) virus is a single strain, positive-sense ((+)sRNA) RNA virus belonging to the genus Pestivirus in the family Flaviviridae. This virus is closely related to ruminant pestiviruses that cause bovine viral diarrhoea (BVDV) and border disease (BDV) of sheep, both of which can also infect pigs naturally causing reproductive problems. The CSF virus is the infectious agent of classical swine fever or hog cholera (also sometimes called pig plague based on the German word “Schweinepest”), which is a highly contagious disease of swine. Swine fever virus causes fever, skin lesions, convulsions, and usually death. The effect of different CSF virus strains varies widely, leading to a wide range of clinical signs. There is only one serotype of the virus and attenuated vaccines are available.

Description: ViroReal® Kit CSF Virus uses one-step reverse transcription RT real-time PCR for the detection of the 5´UTR of the CSF virus genome. 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). Reverse transcription and PCR can be performed in one reaction well.
