AccuPower® Lawsonia PCR kit

AccuPower® Lawsonia PCR Kit is a ready-to-use premix for PCR that can be used to detect the infection of Lawsonia intracellularis (L. intracellularis).

This kit is for research use only and must not be used for diagnostic purposes.

Cat. No.


L. intracellularis is an anaerobic bacterium. It is the causative agent of Porcine proliferative enteropathy and mainly infects the mucous membrane of the small intestine of pigs aged 6 to 20 weeks. Since its outbreak in 1995, it has been continuously damaging pig farms. The bacteria are spread through infected pig feces, contaminated feed, etc. Symptoms include an reduction in weight gain, eventually causing death and ultimately leading to economic loss to farmers. As it is difficult to culture the bacteria, PCR is performed to amplify the gene for the diagnosis, even with a trace amount.

Features and Benefits

  • Convenience & Reproducibility
    All reactants necessary for PCR including primers are lyophilized in each PCR tube, providing reproducible results in a convenient way.

  • Sensitivity
    By applying the patented PyroHotStart(Enzyme-mediated HotStart) technology that minimizes non-specific reactions and maximizes reaction efficiency, only the target gene can be effectively amplified even with a trace amount of template DNA.

  • Stability
    Included stabilizer in the PCR reaction mixture provides increased stability compared to solution-type products.
