Real Time PCR Detection Kit Bartonella henselae

Background:Bartonella henselae detection by using qPCR.

Bartonella henselae (formerly known as Rochalimaea henselae), is an aerobic proteobacterium, slow growing and Gram-negative rod belonging to the Bartonellaceae family and one of the most common types of bacteria in the world. B. henselae is a bacterium that infects both cats and humans. When cats are infected, they show no symptoms; in humans, the bacterium has different effects on immunocompromised individuals and immunocompetent individuals. In both types of people, bacteremia occurs. In immunocompromised individuals, B. henselae is known to be the agent of bacillary angiomatosis, peliosis hepatitis, septicemia, endocarditis, recurring fever, and neurological disorders. The latter symptoms are fatal when misdiagnosed and improperly treated. In immunocompetent individuals, B. henselae can cause cat-scratch disease (bartonellosis). It is a self-limited infection that occurs in immunocompetent individuals who have been bitten or scratched by a cat. As colonies usually take two to six weeks to form, the slow growth contributes to frequent misdiagnosis by cultural methods.
