The BacCer dtec-qPCR comprises a series of specific targeted reagents designed for Bacillus cereus detection by using qPCR. Bacillus cereus is a rod-shaped, motile, Gram-positive bacterium commonly found in soil and food. Some strains are harmful to humans and cause foodborne illness, while other strains can be beneficial as probiotics for animals. It is distributed widely in nature and is commonly found in the soil as a saprophytic organism. B. cereus is also a contributor to the microflora of insects, deriving nutrients from its host, and is found in the rhizosphere of some plants. Food poisoning occurs when food is left without refrigeration for several hours before being served. B. cereus causes two types of food poisoning in humans, including diarrhoeal syndrome (which toxins are unresistant to temperature) and emetic syndrome (which toxin is resistant to temperature). Although it is commonly known to cause food-borne intoxications, it has been additionally reported to cause local and systemic infections, as an opportunistic pathogen, especially among immunocompromised patients, newborns, and patients with surgical wounds.

The ASFV dtec-qPCR Test* comprises a series of species-specific targeted reagents designed for African swine fever virus detection by using qPCR. African swine fever virus is the causative agent of African swine fever. It is a large, double-stranded DNA virus which replicates in the cytoplasm of infected cells, and is the only member of the Asfarviridae family.  African swine fever virus is the only virus with a DNA genome transmitted by arthropods. The virus causes a haemorrhagic fever with high mortality rates in pigs, but persistently infects its natural hosts, warthogs, bushpigs and soft ticks of the Ornithodoros genus, with no disease signs. Some isolates can cause death of animals within as little as a week after infection. In all other species, the virus causes no obvious disease. African swine fever virus is endemic to sub-Saharan Africa and exists in the wild through a cycle of infection between ticks and wild pigs, bushpigs and warthogs. It was first described after European settlers brought pigs into areas endemic with African swine fever virus and, as such, is an example of an 'emerging infection'.
