Background: Glaesserella parasuis (former Haemophilus parasuis) is a Gramnegative bacterium (member of the Pasteurellaceae) of the upper respiratory tract of swine. It is the aetiological agent of Glässers disease, a severe systemic disease characterized by fibrinous polyserositis, pericarditis, arthritis and meningitis. In addition to the acute form of the disease, Glaesserella parasuis is an important component of the Porcine Respiratory Disease Complex (PRDC). Fifteen serovars of Glaesserella parasuis have been reported, but a high percentage of the evaluated isolates are nontypeable. Isolates from the upper respiratory tract are mainly apathogenic strains of clinically healthy swine.

Description: BactoReal® Kit Glaesserella parasuis uses real-time PCR for the detection of the 16S rRNA gene of Glaesserella parasuis (former H. parasuis). 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.
