The PEDV dtec-RT-qPCR comprises a series of species-specific targeted reagents designed for Porcine epidemic diarrhea virus detection by using qPCR. Porcine epidemic diarrhea virus belongs to the family Coronaviridae and contains an enveloped, single-stranded positive-sense RNA genome. The virus infects the cells lining the small intestine of pigs causing porcine epidemic diarrhea, a condition of severe diarrhea and dehydration. Older hogs mostly get sick and lose weight after being infected, while newborn piglets usually die within five days of contracting the virus. PEDV has a substantial economic burden given that it is highly infectious, resulting in a significant morbidity and mortality in piglets.
