RT-PCR is a widely used method for detection of PRRSV, because it is a rapid, sensitive and highly specific detection tool. However, the profound diversity and rapid evolution of PRRSV genomes complicates the development of highly sensitive and robust assays. Several factors need to be taken into consideration when using RT-PCR for diagnosis of PRRSV.
