BactoReal® Aerococcus viridans


BactoReal Aerococcus viridans


Background: Aerococcus viridans is a Gram-positive bacterium causing gaffkemia in marine lobsters, and it has been associated with septicemia in sea turtles. Aerococcus viridans has also been isolated from the milk of cows with subclinical mastitis. It can also cause different human infections such as endocarditis, urinary tract infections, arthritis, or meningitis.

BactoReal® Aerococcus viridans is a detection assay for rapid and sensitive detection of DNA of Aerococcus viridans and Aerococcus urinaequi by real-time PCR.

Specificity and sensitivity: See product description

Also available as kitversion: BactoReal® Kit Aerococcus viridans

Order no. RTGV912
Unit 100 reactions
Technology Real-time PCR
Target gene 16S rDNA gene, detection in FAM channel
Content Assay (primers + probe) for A. viridans
Positive Control A. viridans
Amplification mix & IPC Not included, see product description
PCR-Platforms Evaluated for ABI PRISM® 7500, LightCycler® 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.
