BactoReal® Kit Staphylococcus aureus

qPCR / Real Time PCR/ PCR
100 or 50 reactions

Background: Staphylococcus aureus is a Grampositive bacterium. In healthy animals, S. aureus colonization of the skin, intestinal tract, or nasopharynx is generally asymptomatic. However, depending on the strain, S. aureus is capable of secreting several exotoxins. Many of these toxins are associated with specific diseases. In cattle, S. aureus causes one of the most common types of chronic mastitis.

Description: BactoReal® Kit Staphylococcus aureus uses real-time PCR for the detection of the thermonuclease (nuc) gene of S. aureus. 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).
