Collection of Oral Fluid Samples to Survey for PRRSV in Belgian Farms

The use of oral fluid (OF) samples for the detection and monitoring of PRRSV has gained in popularity over the last years. It is a less labor-intensive and more cost-effective method than the traditional serum sampling. Yet, interpretation of the results from PRRSV endemically infected and/or vaccinated farms can be difficult, write S. Van Poucke, E. de Jong, C. Goodell, E. Van Driessche and T. Meyns.
