Background: Avian mycoplasmosis is caused by several pathogenic mycoplasmae. Mycoplasma gallisepticum and Mycoplasma synoviae are the most important avian pathogens. In addition, Mycoplasma meleagridis and Mycoplasma iowae can also cause disease in poultry, but Mycoplasma gallisepticum and Mycoplasma synoviae are considered the main species of pathogenic mycoplasmae. Mycoplasma gallisepticum and Mycoplasma synoviae cause chronic respiratory disease (CRD) and infectious synovitis of chickens and turkeys especially in the presence of stresses or other respiratory pathogens, causing economic losses due to decrease in growth rate, loss of weight and reduced egg production.

Description: BactoReal® Kit Mycoplasma gallisepticum & synoviae uses multiplex real-time PCR for the detection of the mgc2 gene (cytadhesin-like protein encoding gene) of M. gallisepticum and the vlhA gene (haemagglutinin encoding gene) of M. synoviae. Our carefully designed primers and probe ensure highest sensitivity and specificity. The kit consists of an assay mix for the detection of the pathogen as well as a positive control and an internal positive control (IPC). To minimize PCR cross-contamination,the reaction mix included contains dUTP and uracil-N glycosylase (UNG). For more detailed information see here.
