Product Description:

SIV Detection kit contains patented technology for the detection of Swine Influenza virus. The contains everything you need. SIMPLY ADD the protocol

SIV Kit shows the greatest sensitivity and specificity of atleast 1000 times compared to previous methods because of a new method wich amplifies specific DNA of swine Influenza virus.

Quality Control
SIV kit is manufactured through strict quality control inspection procedures ( ISO9001/4001)

Patented Technology
SIV Kit is very accurate as it inhibits the non-specific reactions. Enhanced sensitivity is observed by patented CLP and MAXIME Technology

SIV Kit provides you with all the components including primers. dNTP. All you have to do is add the RNA and get excellent reproducible results.

Swine influenza is an acute, highly contagious, respiratory disease that results from infection with type A influenza virus. It is commonly known in the industry as Swine Flu, Hog Flu, and Pig Flu. The etiology of Hog Flu is a Type A Influenza virus which belongs to the Orthomyxoviridae family. It is an enveloped, RNA virus with a lipid envelope and a helical nucleocapsid. Field isolates of variable virulence exist, and clinical manifestation may be determined by secondary organisms.

Pigs are the principal hosts of classic swine influenza virus. Influenza is transmitted primarily pig-to-pig by the nasopharyngeal route. Nasal secretions are laden with virus during the acute febrile stage. The virus is easily carried and spread by avian species, particularly waterfowl, and humans. Care should be taken to prevent spread from and between birds and humans to swine. The virus can be shed for 30 days post-inoculation and has been recovered from clinically normal animals. VeTeKTM SIV Detection Kit is direct detection of swine influenza virus on the basis of a genetic database, so it can diagnose very fast and accurately. It can amplify only specific gene using the RT-PCR (Reverse Transcription-Polymerase Chain Reaction) method, and take only 2~3 hours fordetection. Therefore, it is a very fast accurate, reliable technique.

The components of SIV Detection Kit should be stored at -20℃, under this condition, the kit is stable until expiration date stated on the label.
