S. equi is a gram-positive bacterium that is primarily pathogenic to horses. Infectious purulent abscesses are formed in the lymph nodes and mucous membranes of the cheeks. Main symptoms, such as fever, runny nose, and anorexia, appear in horses affected by the disease. S. equi is also spread through direct contact with the purulent rhinorrhea of infected horses or indirectly through contaminated water, pasture, or feed. In order to prevent the introduction of disease, it is necessary to isolate and vaccinate affected horses.
Features and Benefits
All reactants necessary for Real-Time PCR are included in a tube, it allows any user to simply perform reaction by adding template DNA and DEPC-D.W.
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.
