The BacAnt dtec-qPCR comprises a series of specific targeted reagents designed for Bacillus anthracis detection by using qPCR. Bacillus anthracis is a Gram-positive, endospore-forming belonging to Bacillaceae family. B. anthracis is the etiologic agent of anthrax a common disease of livestock and, occasionally, of humans and the only obligate pathogen within the genus Bacillus. It can be grown in an ordinary nutrient medium under aerobic or anaerobic conditions. It bears close genotypical and phenotypical resemblance to Bacillus cereus and Bacillus thuringiensis. B. anthracis endospores, in particular, are highly resilient, surviving extremes of temperature, low-nutrient environments, and harsh chemical treatment over decades or centuries.
