Classical swine fever (CSF) is a contagious and devastating disease, causing serious losses in the pig industry worldwide. Vaccination of pigs with the conventional C-strain vaccine has been practised in different regions of the world in order to prevent the disease. In the control programmes of CSF, rapid detection and identification of the causing agent, classical swine fever virus (CSFV) is a crucial step. This study describes a novel real-time PCR assay based on primer-probe energy transfer… CONTINUE READING
