Abstract
There is a need for an effective, efficient way to monitor the disease status of production facilities while minimizing the stress caused to an animal by blood sampling and other invasive diagnostic techniques. The purpose of this work is to develop an air sampler and collection media that will allow the detection of PRRSV non-invasively.
