Background: The family Coronaviridae includes pathogenic porcine coronaviruses such as the transmissible gastroenteritis virus (TGEV), the porcine respiratory coronavirus (PRCV), the porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV), the swine delta coronavirus (SDCV, also called PDCoV) and the porcine hemmaglutinating encephalomyelitis virus (PHEV). TGEV causes transmissible gastroenteritis (diarrhea and vomiting) in pigs, mortality is highest in neonates. PRCV is a mutant of TGEV and does not appear to be an important primary pathogen. PEDV is similar to, but antigenically distinct from TGEV. When epidemic, PEDV causes acute watery diarrhea and vomiting in a large proportion of all ages of swine. If PEDV is endemic, then diarrhea is observed with lower morbidity in suckling and recently weaned pigs. SDCV is a new virus first found in pigs in Hong Kong in 2012 and 2014 in the United States. SDCV causes acute watery diarrhea and vomiting in a large proportion at all ages of swine. SDCV infection is clinically similar to, but genetically distinct from porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV) and transmissible gastroenteritis virus (TGEV).

ViroReal® PEDV & TGEV is a detection assay for rapid and sensitive detection of RNA of TGEV (transmissible gastroenteritis virus) as well as of PEDV (porcine epidemic diarrhea virus) by reverse transcription real-time PCR.

Specificity and sensitivity: See product description
