DALLAS-FORT WORTH, TX — November 19, 2021 — BioStone Animal Health is proud to announce the launch of AsurDxTM Porcine Circovirus 3 (PCV-3) Antibody Test Kit for the detection of pig antibodies specific to Porcine Circovirus 3 (PCV-3) in pig serum/plasma. Porcine circovirus 3 (PCV-3) is a recently described virus belonging to the family Circoviridae. It represents the third member of the genus Circovirus able to infect swine, together with PCV-1, considered non-pathogenic, and PCV-2, one of the most economically relevant viruses for the worldwide swine industry. The Europe research result that a high amount of PCV3 was detected in tissues in stillbirths with arthrogryposis and in preweaning piglets with nervous disease and multisystemic inflammation providing good evidence of its likely causal association with disease. The AsurDxTM Porcine Circovirus 3 (PCV-3) Antibody Test Kit provides a simple, rapid, sensitive, and cost-effective colorimetric enzyme-based immunoassay (ELISA) screening method.
