AmpliTest Mycoplasma canis

(Real Time PCR)


Mycoplasma canis (Haemobartonella canis) is a Gram-negative epierythrocytic parasitic bacterium in dogs. M. canis is transmitted by ticks (and, probably, fleas). The source of infection can be blood transfusion from the infected animal to the healthy one. Mycoplasmas are suspected to be transmitted from bitches to pups, but it has not been proven so far. The acute phase of the disease shows the symptoms of weakness, loss of appetite, weight loss, dyspnoea, fever and pale mucous membranes. The dominant symptom of the disease is haemolytic anaemia. Sick dog shows a decreased appetite, weakness or weight loss. Most often, dogs fall ill after splenectomy (spleen removal), chemotherapy or immunosuppression and when a dog has concomitant bacterial and viral infections.

AmpliTest Mycoplasma canis (Real Time PCR) test is designed to detect DNA sequences specific for bacteria Mycoplasma canis in DNA preparations obtained from tissues of infected animal. 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 (recombinant DNAs) allow for monitoring the correctness of the Real Time PCR reaction.
