Parvovirus: MVM; MPV (1-5)
 Parvoviruses of mice are single stranded nonenveloped DNA viruses of several species: Minute Virus of Mice (MVM) and Mouse Parvovirus (MPV).
 Serologic Evaluation: 
 Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) detects antibodies against Parvovirus in mouse sera.
 Quantitative Polymerase Chain Reaction (qPCR):  
  qPCR assay is based on the amplification of parvoviral genome. Test samples are positive when at least one copy of the virus is detected.
 Sample:
 Sera; Feces
