Background: American foulbrood (AFB) is a bacterial brood disease of honeybees caused by the Grampositive and spore-forming bacterium Paenibacillus larvae. The disease is transferred and initiated only by the spore stage of the bacterium. Spores infect young bee larvae, then the spores germinate in the gut of the larva and the vegetative form of the bacteria begins to grow, taking its nourishment from the larva. Infected larvae normally die after their cell is sealed. The vegetative form of the bacterium produces many millions of spores, which may remain dormant for many years.

Description: BactoReal® Kit American Foulbrood 1.1 uses real-time PCR for the detection of the 16S rRNA gene of Paenibacillus larvae. 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) to minimize PCR cross-contamination.
