Research Project: Pen-Side Detection of Senecavirus A (SVA)

Location: Virus and Prion Research

Project Number: 5030-32000-230-072-I
Project Type: Interagency Reimbursable Agreement

Start Date: Jul 1, 2021
End Date: Jun 30, 2022

Generation of a pen-side test to detect Senecavirus A in swine that could be deployed in the field.

ARS will propagate, concentrate, and inactivate Senecavirus A (SVA) for generation of monoclonal antibodies. The antibodies will tested on lateral flow test strips to evaluate the test as a rapid portable strategy suitable for pen-side detection. Samples of known positive/negative status collected from previous SVA experimental challenge studies will be used to assess test performance.
