Background: Porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV), a member of the genus Coronavirus (Alphacoronavirus), family Coronaviridae, is a positive-sense, enveloped, single-stranded RNA virus. Severity of disease is variable and dependent on the epidemiological status of the herd. When epidemic, PEDV causes acute watery diarrhea and vomiting in swine of all ages. If endemic, then diarrhea is observed with lower morbidity in suckling and recently weaned pigs. The PED virus is similar to, but antigenically distinct from transmissible gastroenteritis virus (TGEV).

Description: ViroReal® Kit PEDV uses one-step reverse transcription RT real-time PCR for the detection of the nucleocapsid protein gene (N gene) of PEDV. 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. For more detailed information see here.
