The AnaSpp epPCR comprises a series of specific targeted reagents designed for Anaplasma spp. detection by using epPCR. Anaplasma is a genus of rickettsiales bacteria belonging to the Ehrlichiaceae family. Anaplasmas reside in host blood cells and lead to the disease anaplasmosis. An intermediate tick hosts is required for maturation. One of the major consequences of infection by red blood cells infecting Anaplasma is the development of haemolytic anaemia due to the damage done to red blood cells. The disease most commonly occurs in tropical areas of the world. Some species of the genus of veterinary interest include A. marginale, A. centrale in cattle; A. mesaeterum, A. ovis in sheep and goats and A. phagocytophilum in dogs, cats and horses. A. phagocytophilum can infect also humans.
