African Swine Fever (ASF), endemic in many African countries, is now spreading to other continents. Though ASF is capable of incurring serious economic losses in affected countries, no vaccine exists to provide immunity to animals.

Developing a scalable, accurate and low cost diagnostic for ASF will be of great help for the current situation.
