BactoReal® Chlamydophila pneumoniae


BactoReal Chlamydophila pneumoniae


Background: Chlamydophila pneumoniae (formerly Chlamydia pneumoniae) is a gram-negative obligate intracellular bacterium and has a global distribution. It was formerly thought to be a specific human pathogen, but in the meantime it has also been found  in horses, koala, amphibians, reptiles and other animals . In humans, it commonly causes pharyngitis, bronchitis and atypical pneumonia (community-acquired pneumonia, CAP).

BactoReal® Chlamydophila pneumoniae is a detection assay for rapid and sensitive detection of DNA of Chlamydophila pneumoniae by real-time PCR. The test detects human as well as animal C. pneumoniae biovars.

Unit 50 reactions
Technology Real-time PCR
Target gene ospA gene, detection in FAM channel
Content Assay (pimers + probe) for C. pneumoniae
Positive Control C. pneumoniae
Amplification mix & IPC Not included, see product description
PCR-Platforms Evaluated for ABI PRISM® 7500, LightCycler® 1.2/2.0/480 and MX3005P. Assay can also be used with other real-time PCR instruments.


Internal Positive Control (IPC) ÔÇô not included, optional: For exclusion of false-negative interpretation of results caused by PCR inhibition an ingenetix internal positive control assay (ControlReal tests, or Internal Positive Control Assays) can be optionally performed in a multiplex PCR, depending on the PCR-platform. See product description.
– Control
Real tests (order no. RTGMCR-1, 2 or 3) contain primers, a probe and an internal control PCR target included in the assay mix.
Internal Positive Control Assays (order no. RTGMIPC-1, 2 or 3) contain primers, a probe and an internal control PCR target in an extra tube (for control of DNA extraction and PCR inhibition).

ViroReal®, BactoReal® and ParoReal Assays detecting viral, bacterial and parasitic DNA are optimized to run under the same thermal cycling conditions and with the same amplification mix.
