No mouse hepatitis virus found in animals in 10-4 – restrictions no longer apply

Information from the Department's vets

We have received the negative results of samples taken from unit 10-4.

We have received the results of blood and fecal samples taken from 153 animals who were potentially exposed to MHV.

Blood samples were analysed by serology for the presence of MHV antibodies, and fecal samples were analysed by PCR for the presence of MHV virus.

The negative results were thus obtained in two independent test materials, and where two different parameters were measured by two different test methods .

We therefore feel confident that we have a true negative.

All restrictions are removed from now on.

For further information please contact one of AEM's veterinarians.
