Background:  The Chlamydiaceae family currently includes two genera and one candidate genus: genus Chlamydia (including the species Chlamydia muridarum, Chlamydia suis, Chlamydia trachomatis), genus Chlamydophila (including the species Chlamydophila abortus, Chlamydophila caviae Chlamydophila felis, Chlamydia pecorum, Chlamydophila pneumoniae, Chlamydophila psittaci), and candidatus Clavochlamydia. All Chlamydiaceae are obligate intracellular Gram-negative bacteria that cause diseases in humans and animals worldwide.

Description:  BactoReal® Kit Chlamydiaceae uses real-time PCR for the detection of the 23S rRNA gene of C. muridarum, C. suis, C. trachomatis, C. abortus, C. caviae, C. felis, C. pecorum, C. pneumoniae and C. psittaci. 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).
