Abstract

The objective of this study was to compare the absorption and M. hyopneumoniae detection by real-time PCR using nylon-flocked and rayon-bud swabs. Results of this study showed that absorption and detection of M. hyopneumoniae were significantly higher in nylon-flocked swabs with Ct differences only ranging from 0.5 to 1.7.
