The PPV-1 dtec-qPCR comprises a series of specific targeted reagents designed for Porcine parvovirus 1 detection by using qPCR. Porcine parvovirus 1 is a single-stranded DNA virus belonging to the Protoparvovirus genus. There are other genotypes of Porcine parvovirus (2, 3, 4, 5 and 6) but belong to more distant taxa (different genus). PPV-1 is the most common and important cause of infectious infertility, causing embryonic and foetal death in the absence of maternal clinical signs. The virus is ubiquitous among swine throughout the world and is enzootic in most herds that have been tested. PPV-1 is unusual because it can persist outside the pig for many months and it is resistant to most disinfectants.
