The ChlSui dtec-qPCR comprises a series of species-specific targeted reagents designed for Chlamydia suis detection by using qPCR. Chlamydia suis is Gram-negative non-motile bacterium and an obligate intracellular pathogen of eukaryotic cells belonging to the Chlamydiaceae family. A high degree of genetic diversity was observed in C. suis when compared to other chlamydial species, in fact several strains have an extra chromosomal plasmid. Currently, the only known natural host is the pig. C. suis in pigs has been associated with conjunctivitis, rhinitis, pneumonia, enteritis, periparturient dysgalactiae syndrome, reproductive disorders such as return to oestrus (early embryonic dead in more than 50% of the sows) and inferior semen quality (decrease of sperm cell motility and dead of more than 50% of the sperm cells) and apparently asymptomatic infections.
