AmpliTest Leptospira spp.

(Real Time PCR)


Bacteria from the Leptospira genus are the cause of the infectious disease called leptospirosis, which occurs almost everywhere in the world. It is often associated with jaundice and renal failure. The main source of infection are livestock and rodents. Bacteria enter the environment with milk, semen and urine. The infection occurs through damaged skin and mucous membranes. The incubation period is approximately 5-15 days. Symptoms of jaundice include: fever, lack of appetite, weakness, conjunctivitis, yellowing of the mucous membranes and then skin. Uricular manifestations include fever, increased thirst, pain in the lumbar region, mucositis on the mucous membranes, vomiting, diarrhea, polyuria turning later into the oliguria and progressing uremia.

AmpliTest Leptospira spp. (Real Time PCR) test is designed to detect DNA sequences specific for bacteria of the genus Leptospira in DNA samples obtained from specimens of animal origin. The Real Time PCR reaction is a duplex-type. Bacterial DNA is detected in the FAM channel. The second channel (HEX) serves for detection of the internal control. Controls included into the test (rekombinant DNAs) enable control of the correct course of the Real Time PCR reaction.
