Background: Tropheryma whipplei is a gram-postive bacterium that it is very difficult to cultivate. It is a human pathogen causing Whipple’s disease, which is a rare, chronic, systemic illness typically affecting white, middle-aged men. It causes intestinal malabsorption that leads to cachexia. In the majority of cases, multiple organ systems are affected. Symptoms include diarrhea and abdominal pain, joint pain, arthritis, and even dementia. It manifests in the body in various forms and can go undetected for decades before suddenly causing a fatal illness.

BactoReal® Kit Tropheryma whipplei is a real-time PCR test for the detection of Tropheryma whipplei 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
