AccuPower® Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae (APP) PCR Kit is a ready-to-use premix for PCR that can be used to detect the infection of Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae (APP).
※ This kit is for research use only and must not be used for diagnostic purposes.
APP is an anaerobic respiratory pathogen responsible for porcine pleural pneumonia. It may happen unexpectedly in pigs of the age of 6-20 weeks, with a high mortality rate even in a short clinical course. Symptoms include lung adhesions, which might lead to chronic disease, and even cause death in 24-36 hours (in acute cases) or 2–5 days (in general case) after the infection. This kit uses a specific polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to distinguish APP from the other swine respiratory diseases.
