REAL TIME PCR DETECTION TEST KIT Mycobacterium avium ssp paratuberculosis Bovichek

qPCR kit for the detection of Mycobacterium avium sbsp paratuberculosis in tissues and feces of cattle

DESCRIPTION:
This is a qPCR assay for the detection of Mycobacterium avium ssp paratuberculosis (Map) genome in bovine sample.

SUMMARY AND EXPLANATION:
Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis (MAP) is the etiologic agent of paratuberculosis (Johne’s diseases). MAP infects several animal species. However the disease especially affects ruminants (e.g. cattle, goat, sheep). In these species clinical signs consist in progressive weight loss, chronic diarrhea (especially in cattle), reduced milk production, infertility, and eventually death. The diagnosis of MAP infections relies on the detection of the organism in feces or specific antibodies in serum or milk. Serological testing has a poor sensitivity, resulting in false negatives especially in the early stages of the disease. Fecal culture is considered the gold standard. However the method is particularly time-consuming (6–8 weeks). PCR methods have been recently developed. Their sensitivity is similar to that of fecal culture whereas turnaround time is far shorter.

CHARACTERISTICS:
- Test per kit: 50 samples
- qPCR Results within two hours
