Description: Classical Swine Fever virus (CSFV) is a positive single-stranded RNA virus that belongs to the Pestivirus genus within the Flaviviridae family. CSFV causes Classical swine fever (CSF), a highly contagious and often fatal viral disease in swine. Infected pigs develop fever, hemorrhages, lethargy, yellowish diarrhea, vomiting, and a purple skin discoloration of the ears, lower abdomen, and legs. Besides, it can also lead to neurologic signs, reproductive failures and abortion. CSF is one of the most relevant viral epizootic diseases in swine. Considering its effects, it can have severe repercussions from an economic and sanitary standpoint, being a notifiable disease to the world organization for animal health. Classical Swine Fever virus RT-qPCR Kit is designed for the in vitro detection of CSFV. The kit is built to have the broadest possible detection profile whilst remaining specific to CSFV. Thus, this kit has been designed for the specific (inclusivity) and exclusive (exclusivity) in vitro detection of this species. The primers and probe sequences have very high (>95%) homology with a broad range of CSFV genomes based on a comprehensive bioinformatic analysis with all reference data within the NCBI database at the time of design. Due to the inherent instability of RNA viral genomes, it is not possible to guarantee the detection of all clinical isolates. If required, a complementary kit for the detection of an endogenous gene of the species from which samples are being extracted is available at NZYTech (see Vet, Food & Pharma). The complementary usage of an Endogenous Detection reaction provides a solid confirmation that nucleic acids were properly extracted from the selected biological matrix. If you require further information or have a specific question about the detection profile of this kit, please send an e-mail to and our scientific team will answer your question. This kit is designed to be used by trained users in a suitable molecular biology laboratory environment.
