Positive control (RNA) for TGEV

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) 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.

Description: ViroReal® Kit TGEV is based on the amplification and detection of a part of the S region of TGEV using one-step reverse transcription real-time PCR. The test does not detect PRCV.

PCR-platforms: ViroReal® Kit TGEV 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® TGEV

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

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