Background: Riemerella anatipestifer is a Gramnegative 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.

Description: BactoReal® Kit Riemerella anatipestifer uses real-time PCR for the detection of the 16S-23S ribosomal RNA intergenic spacer of Riemerella anatipestifer. 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.
