Cat. No.


C. koseri is Enterobacteriaceae family and one of the bacteria in the digestive tract of humans and animals. However, it is an opportunistic pathogen that can cause fatal meningitis, brain abscesses, sepsis and encephalitis in newborns. In addition, C. koseri can be transmitted vertically from mother to fetus, and transmission in child care facilities and hospitals can occur. It can be treated with antibiotics, but sequelae such as complex hydrocephalus and neurological damage may occur.

Features and Benefits

  • Convenience
    All necessary reactants for real-time PCR are included in a tube (i.e., Master Mix Type), allowing the users to perform reaction simply by adding template DNA, Oligo Mix, and DEPC-D.W.

  • Sensitivity
    By using BIONEER’s HotStart Taq DNA Polymerase 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.
