BactoReal® Streptococcus dysgalactiae


BactoReal Streptococcus dysgalactiae



Background: Streptococcus dysgalactiae is a Gram-positive bacterium belonging to the group C streptococci. It is known to cause clinically acute and subclinical mastitis in cows, ewes and goats, as well as polyarthritis.

BactoReal® Streptococcus dysgalactiae is a detection assay for DNA of Streptococcus dysgalactiae by real-time polymerase chain reaction. This test is performed in a multiplex real-time PCR format to enable a differentiation between S. dysgalactiae from other Streptococcus species, especially S. canis.

Specificity and sensitivity: See product description

Also available as kitversion: BactoReal® Kit Streptococcus dysgalactiae

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 3 (order no. RTGMCR-3) contains primers, a probe and an internal control PCR target included in the assay mix.
Internal Positive Control Assay 3 (order no. RTGMIPC-3) contains 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.
