The BraHyo dtec-qPCR comprises a series of species-specific targeted reagents designed for Brachyspira hyodysenteriae detection by using qPCR. Brachyspira yodysenteriae (formerly Treponema hyodysenteriae and Serpulina hyodysenteriae) is a Gram-negative, motile, loosely coiled spirochete belonging to Brachyspiraceae family. This pathogenic bacteria colonizes the large intestine of pigs causing dysentery. Swine dysentery is easily spread by the faecal-oral route due to the ability of B. hyodysenteriae to survive several weeks in moist faeces from infected pigs. The disease can lead to stunted growth rates and death, which can be extremely costly when the swine are raised for food purposes. Despite the disease is spread worldwide, it is quite prevalent in the United Kingdom.
