This PRRSV Real-time PCR Kit is used to detect Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome Virus in swine serum, plasma and tissue samples, which is 100% specific. Applicable for laboratory use.
Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) is a virus that causes a disease of pigs, called porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS), also known as blue-ear pig disease. This economically important, panzootic disease causes reproductive failure in breeding stock and respiratory tract illness in young pigs. The disease costs the United States swine industry around $644 million annually, and recent estimates in Europe found that it costs almost 1.5 billion euros every year.
Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus is highly contagious in pig herds. It can be transmitted by direct contact or by infectious aerosols. Vaccines have been used to limit the propagation of the disease.
