Porcine Rotavirus Real-time PCR Kit uses Taqman fluorescent probes to amplify and detect the porcine rotavirus (PoRV) gene, which can be applied to porcine rotavirus (PoRV) nucleic acid detection in tissues such as jejunum and small intestine, stool samples, and blood samples

Rotavirus (RV) is considered a major cause of acute viral gastroenteritis in young animals. RV is classified into nine species, five of which have been identified in pigs. Most studies worldwide have highlighted diarrhoea outbreaks caused by RVA, which is considered the most important RV species

Rotaviruses are ubiquitous and they are present in most if not all pig herds with virtually a 100% sero-conversion in adult stock. A further epidemiological feature is their persistence outside the pig, where they are resistant to environmental changes and many disinfectants. Maternal antibodies persist for 3-6 weeks after which pigs become susceptible to infection but exposure does not necessarily result in disease. It is estimated that only 10-15% of diarrhoeas in pigs are initiated by a primary rotavirus infection. The fact that the virus persists in the environment accounts for widespread infection and therefore a constant risk of disease.
