BactoReal® Kit Mycoplasma pneumoniae (CE-IVD)





Background: Mycoplasma pneumoniae is a very small bacterium lacking a cell wall. This bacterium has a global distribution and is an obligate pathogen and highly infectious. Transmission occurs through close contact with contaminated respiratory droplets. Mycoplasma pneumoniae infects the mucosal membrane of the respiratory tract and is a common cause of both upper and lower respiratory infections, including tracheobronchitis and primary atypical pneumonia (community-acquired pneumonia, CAP), but it can also cause pharyngitis, meningitis and otitis media.

BactoReal® Kit Mycoplasma pneumoniae is an in vitro diagnostic test, based on real-time PCR, for the detection of Mycoplasma pneumoniae. 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
