Background: Echinococcus multilocularis is a cyclophyllid tapeworm causing echinococcosis, a disease that affects many canid species including wolves, coyotes, foxes, jackals and domesticated dogs. Humans can also contract this disease. Echinococcus multilocularis requires two types of hosts to mature properly. It is transmitted to intermediate hosts via the ingestion of eggs in infected food. The eggs travel to the lungs, liver, and other internal organs where they develop into multilocular cysts. Finally, Echinococcus multilocularis is transmitted to definitive hosts by means of eating infected, cyst-containing organs. There it becomes attached to the tissues and grows.

Description: ParoReal Kit Echinococcus multilocularis uses real-time PCR for the detection of the mitochondrial ND1 gene of E. multilocularis. 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).
