BactoReal® Kit 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® Kit Chlamydophila pneumoniae is a real-time PCR test for the detection of Chlamydophila pneumoniae DNA. The included internal DNA positive control system can be used as DNA extraction and PCR inhibition control.

Sensitivity and specificity: See manual or product description
