Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS) is a highly contagious and economically devastating disease. Reproductive problems, such as premature birth, late abortion and increased stillbirth, can lead to increased piglet mortality and a lower birth rate; respiratory diseases can make pigs sick and make them susceptible to secondary infections.
Infected pigs may be asymptomatic or exhibit symptoms that are confused with swine flu, pseudorabies (Aujeszky's disease), swine fever virus, parvovirus, encephalomyocarditis, chlamydia and mycoplasmosis. Since these infected animals could not be found, they will spread PRRS virus throughout the herd through the body fluid with virus.
Because of the existence of diseases such as PRRS, it is imperative to find countermeasures. Effective control relies on early diagnosis and rapid removal or isolation of sick pigs. Serological assays, such as the IDEXX PRRS X3 Antibody Detection Kit, provide a quick and final diagnosis for confirming the negative status of the herd, resisting PRRS virus and protecting producers' benefits.
PRRS oral mucus antibody detection
The PRRS oral mucus antibody test is an antibody against porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS) virus in an oral mucus sample of a pig individual or group using an enzyme-linked immunoreactivity (ELISA).
PRRS antibody detection
The PRRS Antibody Detection Kit is a novel enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for the detection of PRRS antibodies in serum or plasma samples.
PRRS X3 Antibody Detection
The PRRS X3 Antibody Detection Kit is a novel enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for the detection of PRRS antibodies in serum or plasma samples.
Oral mucus collection kit
The Oral Mucus Collection Tool contains all the consumables needed to collect oral mucus samples. The kits are already assembled and ready to use. The kit comes in two sizes. Five sample kits can collect 5 oral mucus samples from the consumables, and 25 sample kits can collect 25 oral mucus samples.
The use of a variety of swine diseases test kits
can help us effectively control the occurrence and spread of porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome.
