ViroReal® Swine Influenza A (SIV)


ViroReal Swine Influenza AViroReal Assay FAM VET RNA mit Gefahrensymbol


Background: Swine influenza is an acute, febrile respiratory disease of swine with high morbidity and low mortality. In the industry it is commonly known as swine flu, hog flu, and pig flu. It is caused by the influenza virus, mainly influenza type A, an enveloped virus with single-stranded, segmented RNA with negative polarity as genome. Influenza A virus infects a wide variety of warm-blooded animals including pigs, birds, horses as well as humans.

ViroReal® Swine Influenza A (SIV) is a detection assay for rapid and sensitive detection of RNA of the influenza A virus of warm-blooded animals including pigs, birds, horses as well as humans by reverse transcription real-time PCR.

Specificity and sensitivity: See product description

Also available as kitversion: ViroReal® Kit Swine Influenza A (SIV)
