This is our Friday rubric: every week a new Science Page from the Bob Morrison’s Swine Health Monitoring Project. The previous editions of the science page are available on our website.
- Type of material and temperature have an impact on PEDV stability.
- Infectious PEDV was not recovered from any fomite material after 2 days at room temperature (25ºC / 77ºF).
- PEDV showed higher stability on plastic, cloth, Tyvek® coveralls, aluminum foil, Styrofoam at 4ºC (39.2ºF).
- Virus could be detected by qRT-PCR from contaminated fomites even when infectivity was not observed.
