ParoReal Kit Histomonas meleagridis

Detection of the 18S rRNA gene of Histomonas meleagridis

Background: Histomonas meleagridis is a parasitic protozoan causing blackhead disease, infectious enterohepatitis, or histomoniasis. It can infect turkeys, chickens, and occasionally other galliform birds but is most deadly in turkeys. Chickens are more resistant to the effects of the infection but may act as carriers. Histomonas meleagridis induces extensive and severe necrosis of the tissues of the mucosa and submucosa of cecum and parenchyma of the liver. It is transmitted by the nematode Heterakis gallinarum or directly from the droppings of infected birds. Histomonas meleagridis interacts with other gut organisms, such as bacteria and coccidia, and depends on them for full virulence.

Description: ParoReal Kit Histomonas meleagridis uses real-time PCR for the detection of the 18S rRNA gene of H. meleagridis. 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).
