BactoReal® Kit Streptococcus agalactiae

qPCR / Real Time PCR/ PCR
100 or 50 reactions

Background: Streptococcus agalactiae (also known as Group B streptococcus or GBS) is a beta-hemolytic Grampositive streptococcus. It is pathogenic primarily for animals, but can also infect humans. In cattle, it causes mastitis, which leads to diminished milk production. Transmission occurs during milking. Streptococcus agalactiae secretes a protein (CAMP factor) which causes haemolysis in the presence of beta-toxin of Staphylococcus aureus in blood agar.

Description: BactoReal® Kit Streptococcus agalactiae uses real-time PCR for the detection of the cfb gene of S. agalactiae. 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).
