BactoReal® Kit Clostridium difficile

Detection of the toxin A (tcdA) gene and toxin B (tcdB) gene of Clostridium difficile

Background: Clostridium difficile is a Grampositive spore-forming anaerobic bacterium, commonly found in low concentrations in the intestine of clinically normal animals and humans. In higher concentration Clostridium difficile is an important cause of diarrhea in neonatal swine. Affected piglets may have dyspnea, abdominal distention, and scrotal edema. Diarrhea may not be present in all pigs affected. Pathogenic C. difficile strains produce multiple toxins. The best characterized are enterotoxin (Clostridium difficile toxin A causing fluid secretion into the gut lumen) and cytotoxin (Clostridium difficile toxin B), both of which may produce diarrhea and inflammation.

Description: BactoReal® Kit Clostridium difficile uses real-time PCR for the detection of the Clostridium difficile toxin A (tcdA) gene and Clostridium difficile toxin B (tcdB) gene of C. difficile. 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).
