Rapid Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDV) test
Neogen's new test to rapidly and accurately detect porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV) is now available through the veterinary diagnostics laboratory of its GeneSeek subsidiary, which is based in Lincoln, Nebraska, USA.
Based on real-time PCR, each test is $25, and depending on testing volumes, GeneSeek anticipates most test results should be available on the next business day after sample receipt. Sample types accepted for testing include environmental sample pads or swabs, fecal swabs and oral fluids. Early detection of the virus is critical to stop its spread from farm to farm, and between facilities within a pig farm or pig production site.
Other rapid animal health tests available through GeneSeek include those for porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV), swine influenza virus (SIV), Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae and porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2).
