African swine fever
Acute threat for German farms?
The first case of African swine fever (ASP) in Germany has been confirmed. In Brandenburg, near the Polish border, a wild boar was found which had died of the disease. Several countries outside the EU, including China and Japan, have imposed an import ban on German pork as a precautionary measure.
The first symptoms of infection of a flock with ASP can easily be overlooked. It can then take several weeks for the infection to spread throughout the entire flock. In case of unclear disease occurrence in the herd, it is therefore essential to carry out an early diagnosis of the ASFV pathogen!
With our partner company Ingenetix we can offer you a real-time PCR kit for the detection of ASFV, which is approved by the FLI for in-vitro diagnostics (IVD). This test is characterized by a high sensitivity and specificity and contains all necessary reagents, including controls, in the kit.

- Amplification and detection of: p72 gene of African Swine Fever Virus
- Real-time PCR with rapid hot-start Taq DNA Polymerase
- ROX™ Dyestuff as passive reference
- Internal positive control system to exclude false negative results
- Optimized for handling PCR inhibitors
- PCR devices: runs on all common real-time PCR instruments
- Harmonized thermal profiles for simultaneous analysis of DNA and RNA
- Available as kit (with reaction mix)
- FLI approval for in-vitro diagnostics (approval no.: FLI-C 056)
