The VetMAX PRRSV EU & NA 2.0 Kit is a ready-to-use, single-well real-time RT-PCR kit that enables reliable, rapid, and accurate detection of porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) strains in porcine samples. The European (EU) and North American (NA) strains are detected and differentiated using fluorescent hydrolysis probe chemistry. An exogenous internal positive control (IPC) is included.
The advanced technology of the VetMAX PRRSV EU & NA 2.0 Kit offers several benefits:
• Highly accurate―updated design detects the four subtypes of the EU PRRSV Type 1 and NA PRRSV strains, including the HP-PRRSV strain
• Fast―results obtained in less than two hours
• Flexible―fast and standard amplification modes
• Versatile―compatible with a variety of sample matrices, including serum, whole blood, semen, tissue, oral fluid, and cell culture supernatant samples in pools of up to five samples (serum, whole blood, and semen)
The kit offers the convenience of a simple and fast workflow combining the MagMAX CORE nucleic acid purification method with a fast PCR amplification mode for a result in less than two hours.
More than 780 field samples from 13 origins identified as positive or negative for PRRS virus by partner laboratories have been tested. The results showed 99.5% sensitivity and 99.6% specificity.
