ViroReal® Pseudorabiesvirus (SHV-1)


ViroReal PCV2



Background: Pseudorabiesvirus (PRV) is a swine DNA herpesvirus of the Alphaherpesvirinae subfamily. It is also known as suid herpesvirus 1 (SHV-1), or by its original name, Aujeszky’s disease virus. The pig is the principal reservoir host, but the virus may also infect other mammals like cattle, little ruminants, carnivores and rodents. It is not pathogenic for humans. In swine, AujeszkyÔÇÖs disease shows itself under three forms: a nervous form, a respiratory form or a genital form. In latently infected pigs, pseudorabiesvirus persists primarily in the trigeminal or sacral ganglia and the tonsils. In other mammals, it causes infection of the central nervous system with neurologic behavioral changes leading very quickly to death.

ViroReal┬«┬áPseudorabiesvirus (SHV-1) is a detection assay for rapid and sensitive detection of DNA of the pseudorabiesvirus (SHV-1,┬á Aujeszky’s disease virus) by real-time PCR.

Specificity and sensitivity: See product description

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.
