Background: Lawsonia intracellularis is a Gramnegative and obligate intracellular bacterium and the causative agent of porcine proliferative enteropathy (PPE), which is a transmissible enteric disease of growing pigs characterized by adenomatous proliferation of immature intestinal epithelial cells in the distal small intestines, particularly in the ileum. The infection is widely distributed among pig herds in many pig-producing countries, and affected pigs may exhibit impaired growth and diarrhoea.

Description: BactoReal® Kit Lawsonia intracellularis uses real-time PCR for the detection of the 16S rRNA gene of L. intracellularis. 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.
