Background: Ornithobacterium rhinotracheale (ORT) is a Gramnegative bacterium causing respiratory disease in turkeys, chickens and other avian species. Clinical signs are nasal discharge, sneezing, coughing and sinusitis. Ornithobacterium rhinotracheale is currently the only species within the Ornithobacterium genus and found worldwide.

Description: BactoReal® Kit Ornithobacterium rhinotracheale uses real-time PCR for the 16S rRNA gene of Ornithobacterium rhinotracheale. 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.
