Confidence in controlling African Swine Fever

Reliable answers for African Swine Fever Virus control

African Swine Fever (ASF) is a clear threat to both the swine production industry and the health of wild boar populations. INDICAL’s advanced molecular testing solutions enable you to rapidly extract and accurately identify the DNA of the African Swine Fever Virus.

Choose between the new virotype ASFV 2.0 PCR Kit, which has additional internal controls for greater confidence with challenging samples, and virotype ASFV PCR Kit, which supports combined testing for African and Classical Swine Fever Viruses. Both read-to-use assays are approved, validated and implemented by reference and service labs worldwide.

Pair our detection assays with one of our DNA extraction kits, which yield the purest nucleic acids for successful PCR.

Rely on virotype ASFV PCR Kits for fast and accurate test results.
