Background: Porcine circovirus type 3 (PCV3) is a novel circovirus species identified in pigs with porcine dermatitis and nephropathy syndrome (PDNS), reproductive failure, respiratory disease and multi-systemic inflammation. Porcine circovirus is a small, non-enveloped DNA virus that contains a single strand of circular DNA. It belongs to the genus Circovirus in the family Circoviridae.

Description: ViroReal® Kit PCV3 uses real-time PCR for the detection of capsid gene of the porcine circovirus type 3. 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). For more detailed information see here.
