Background: Swine delta coronavirus (SDCV), also called porcine delta coronavirus (PDCoV), is a member of the genus Coronavirus (Deltacoronavirus), family Coronaviridae and a positive-sense, enveloped, single-stranded RNA virus. SDCV is a new virus first found in pigs in Hong Kong in 2012 and 2014 in the United States. Swine delta coronavirus causes acute watery diarrhea and vomiting in a large proportion at all ages of swine. Swine delta coronavirus infection is clinically similar to, but distinct from porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV) and transmissible gastroenteritis virus (TGEV).

Description: ViroReal┬« Kit Swine Delta Coronavirus is based on the amplification and detection of the 3ÔÇÖUTR of swine delta coronavirus using one-step reverse transcription real-time PCR. The test does not detect porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV) or transmissible gastroenteritis virus (TGEV).

PCR-platforms: ViroReal® Kit Swine Delta Coronavirus is developed and validated for the ABI PRISM® 7500 instrument (Life Technologies), LightCycler® 480 (Roche) and Mx3005P® QPCR System (Agilent), but is also suitable for other real-time PCR instruments.

Specificity and sensitivity: See product description

Also available as assay only: ViroReal® Swine Delta Coronavirus

ViroReal®, BactoReal® and ParoReal Kits run with the same cycling conditions.

RNA and DNA material can be analysed in one PCR run.
