Background: Mycobacterium avium ssp. paratuberculosis (MAP) causes Johne's disease, a chronic gastroenteritis affecting primarily ruminants and many other species. This disease is one of the most widespread and economically important diseases of ruminants. It has a relatively long incubation period characterized by the excretion of MAP in faeces for months and years before first clinical symptoms develop.

Description: BactoReal® Kit Mycobacterium avium ssp. paratuberculosis uses real-time PCR for the detection of the insertion sequence IS900 of M. avium ssp. paratuberculosis. 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.
