Background: Streptococcus suis (S. suis) is a Grampositive, zoonotic bacterial pathogen of pigs and wild boars. It is associated with fever, sudden deaths, respiratory problems, and pneumonia, meningitis and fertility problems in pig herds, representing a substantial economic burden for the pig industry.

Description: BactoReal® Kit Streptococcus suis uses real-time PCR for the detection of the fibrinogen binding protein (fbpS) gene of Streptococcus suis. 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.
