VetAlert™ African Swine Fever Virus (ASFV) DNA Test Kit
True Name: African Swine Fever Virus DNA Test Kit, Product Code 57A5.80
Catalog Number: TC-9096-096
USDA Licensed: 1 November 2021
Name and Intended Use
The ASFV DNA Test Kit is intended for the rapid in vitro qualitative detection of African Swine Fever (ASF) viral DNA by real-time polymerase chain reaction (rPCR). The reagents should be used to detect viral DNA extracted from spleen and whole blood collected in EDTA from swine. The test is intended for use by veterinary or other laboratory scientists for the presumptive identification of ASFV. The test should be performed on the ABI 7500 or an equivalent real-time PCR instrument.
Principles of the Procedure
The ASFV PCR test is a real-time PCR method that utilizes two independent, specific sets of forward and reverse primers, an inhibition control and fluorogenic probe hydrolysis chemistry for the detection of ASF viral DNA in samples. The test has specific sets of oligonucleotide primers and FAM probes that target the VP72 gene of the ASFV.
