BactoReal® Riemerella anatipestifer


BactoReal Riemerella anatipestifer



Background: Riemerella anatipestifer is a Gram-negative bacterium that causes acute or chronic septicaemia. It primarily affects young ducks and less frequently turkeys and geese throughout the world. There are 21 known serotypes and infection is spread horizontally between birds. Infection may be referred to as Duck Septicaemia, Goose ‘flu, Riemerellosis, New Duck Disease and Polyserositis.

BactoReal® Riemerella anatipestifer is a detection assay for DNA of Riemerella anatipestifer by real-time polymerase chain reaction.

Specificity and sensitivity: See product description

Also available as kitversion: BactoReal® Kit Riemerella anatipestifer

Target gene 16S-23S ribosomal RNA intergenic spacer, detection in FAM channel
Content Assay (pimers + probe) for R. anatipestifer
Positive Control R. anatipestifer
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.
