Background: Streptococcus is a genus of Grampositive bacteria belonging to the Firmicutes and the lactic acid bacteria group. There are currently over 50 species known in this genus. Many streptococcal species are nonpathogenic and form part of the commensal animal or human microbiome of the mouth, skin, intestine, and upper respiratory tract. Certain Streptococcus species are responsible for streptococcal pharyngitis, pink eye, meningitis, bacterial pneumonia, endocarditis, erysipelas, necrotizing fasciitis and bovine mastitis.

Description: BactoReal® Kit Streptococcus spp. uses real-time PCR for the detection of the 23S rRNA gene of species of the genus Streptococcus. 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.
