BactoReal® Kit Brachyspira hyo/pilo

Combined detection of the nox gene of Brachyspira hyodysenteriae and Brachyspira pilosicoli. No differentiation between species

Background: Brachyspira are anaerobic intestinal spirochaetes. Brachyspira hyodysenteriae (previously called Serpulina hyodysenteriae or Treponema hyodysenteriae) is the causative agent of swine dysentery. Swine dysentery is a disease characterized by mucohaemorrhagic diarrhoea with lesions confined to the large intestine of pigs. Its incubation time is 10-14 days. The faecal excretion of B. hyodysenteriae starts 2 days after infection. Brachyspira pilosicoli (previously called Serpulina pilosicoli) colonizes the large intestine of various species, including humans. It is the etiologic agent of human and animal intestinal spirochetosis and rarely implicated as a cause of bacteremia. For example, it is the causative agent of porcine colonic spirochaetosis (PCS). Brachyspira are anaerobic bacteria but are aerotolerant due, at least in part, to high NADH oxidase activity.

Description: BactoReal® Kit Brachyspira hyo/pilo uses real-time PCR for the detection of the NADH oxidase (nox) gene of B. hyodysenteriae and B. pilosicoli. 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
