Detection of the 23S-5S rDNA intergenic spacer region of Legionella pneumophila.

Background: Legionella are Gram-negative bacteria frequently found in aquatic systems and living within amoebae. The most common devices that have been found to transmit Legionella are domestic hot-water systems heated to less than 70°C, air conditioners and cooling towers. Legionella are transmitted to the lungs of human beings through aerosolized water. No person-to-person transmission has been yet observed. Many different species of Legionella (at least 40) have been discovered, and more than 66 serogroups of Legionella have been identified. Many thereof are considered be potentially pathogenic for humans. Infection by Legionella pneumophila results mainly in Legionnaire's disease. However, some strains manifest a disorder called Pontiac Fever, which is a milder infection than the Legionnaire's disease.

Description: BactoReal® Kit Legionella pneumophila uses real-time PCR for the detection of the 23S-5S rDNA intergenic spacer region of all known serogroups and subspecies of L. pneumophila. Our carefully designed primers and probe ensure highest sensitivity and specificity. The kit consists of an assay mix for the detection of the pathogen as well as a positive control and an internal positive control (IPC). To minimize PCR cross-contamination, the reaction mix included contains dUTP and uracil-N glycosylase (UNG).

Product Features:
- Amplification and detection: 23S-5S rDNA spacer region of L. pneumophila

- ROX™ dye as passive reference
- Internal Positive Control System to exclude false-negative results
- Optimized to handle PCR inhibitors
- PCR- platforms: runs on all established standard real-time PCR- platforms
- Harmonized thermal profiles to run RNA and DNA samples simultaneously
