Transmissible Gastroenteritis & Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (TGE/PED)
Transmissible gastroenteritis (TGE) is a common viral disease of the small intestine that causes vomiting and profuse diarrhea in pigs of all ages. The causal TGE virus infects and destroys villous epithelial cells of the jejunum and ileum, which results in severe villous atrophy, malabsorption, osmotic diarrhea, and dehydration. Porcine epidemic diarrhea (PED) virus diarrhea affects pigs of all ages and clinically resembles TGE in several respects. Oral infection results in viral replication in the epithelial cells of the small intestinal villi. Cells on colonic villialso become infected. No other tissue tropisms have been shown. Virus is excreted in the feces. TGE and PED are highly contagious enteric diseases of piglets. The clinical signs of these diseases are very similar and include watery, yellowish diarrhea. TGE/PED Detection Kitis direct detection of TGE and/or PED 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 for detection. Therefore, it is a very fast accurate, reliable technique.
The components of TGE/PED Detection Kitshould be stored at -20℃, under this condition, the kit is stable until expiration date stated on the label.
