ViroReal® Porcine Parvovirus


ViroReal Porcine Parvovirus



Background: Porcine parvovirus (PPV) is a member of the Parvoviridae family with a single-stranded DNA as genome. PPV is associated with reproductive problems, including abortion, still births, small litters, neonatal deaths and weak piglets. PPV multiplies normally in the intestine of the pig without causing clinical signs. Disease occurs when sero-negative dams are infected in the first half of gestation and the virus crosses the placenta.

ViroReal® Porcine Parvovirus is a detection assay for rapid and sensitive detection of DNA of porcine parvovirus (PPV) by real-time PCR.

Specificity and sensitivity: See product description

Also available as kitversion: ViroReal® Kit Porcine Parvovirus

PCR-Platforms Evaluated for ABI PRISM® 7500, LightCycler® 480 and MX3005P. Assay can also be used with other real-time PCR instruments.


Internal Positive Control (IPC) ÔÇô not included, optional: For exclusion of false-negative interpretation of results caused by PCR inhibition an ingenetix internal positive control assay (ControlReal tests, or Internal Positive Control Assays) can be optionally performed in a multiplex PCR, depending on the PCR-platform. See product description.
– Control
Real tests (order no. RTGMCR-1, 2 or 3) contain primers, a probe and an internal control PCR target included in the assay mix.
Internal Positive Control Assays (order no. RTGMIPC-1, 2 or 3) contain primers, a probe and an internal control PCR target in an extra tube (for control of DNA extraction and PCR inhibition).

ViroReal®, BactoReal® and ParoReal Assays detecting viral, bacterial and parasitic DNA are optimized to run under the same thermal cycling conditions and with the same amplification mix.
