Background: Clostridium perfringens is a spore-forming Grampositive bacterium present in many environmental sources as well as in the intestines of humans and animals. Under certain predisposing conditions, Clostridium perfringens proliferates rapidly, produces toxins and causes disease such as gas gangrene, necrotic enteritis and enterotoxemia. This bacterium is an important cause of food poisoning. Stress and the feed composition are believed to be of major importance for the development of disease. Clostridium perfringens strains are classified into five types (A–E) based on their ability to produce the major lethal toxins alpha (cpa), beta (cpb), epsilon (etx), and iota (iap) which are responsible for the cytotoxic and necrotic activity associated with infection. In addition, strains of C. perfringens may also produce a number of other toxins, including enterotoxin (cpe), beta-2 toxin (cpb2) or theta toxin.

Description: BactoReal® Kit Clostridium perfringens uses real-time PCR for the detection of the 16S rRNA gene of all five serotypes of C. perfringens. 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).
