BactoReal® Mycoplasma suis


BactoReal Mycoplasma suis



Background: Mycoplasma suis (formerly called Eperythrozoon suis) belongs to the hemotrophic mycoplasma group. It is the cause of swine eperythrozoonosis. Acute disease is associated with severe bacteremia and acute hemolytic anemia. In chronically infected pigs clinical signs range from mild icteroanemia, poor growth rates or bad reproductive performance.

BactoReal® Mycoplasma suis is a detection assay for rapid and sensitive detection of DNA of Mycoplasma suis by real-time PCR.

Specificity and sensitivity: See product description

Also available as kitversion: BactoReal® Kit Mycoplasma suis

Unit 100 reactions
Technology Real-time PCR
Target gene 16S rDNA gene, detection in FAM channel
Content Assay (pimers + probe) for Mycoplasma suis
Positive Control Mycoplasma suis
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┬áingenetix 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.
