Background:  Chlamydophila pneumoniae (formerly Chlamydia pneumoniae) is a Gram-negative obligate intracellular bacterium and has a global distribution. It was formerly thought to be a specific human pathogen, but in the meantime it has also been found in horses, koala, amphibians, reptiles and other animals. In humans, it commonly causes pharyngitis, bronchitis and atypical pneumonia (community-acquired pneumonia, CAP).

Description:  BactoReal® Kit Chlamydophila pneumoniae uses real-time PCR for the detection of the ompA gene of Chlamydophila pneumoniae. 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).
