The ClaMic dtec-qPCR comprises a series of specific targeted reagents designed for Clavibacter michiganensis detection by using qPCR. Clavibacter michiganensis is an aerobic, non-sporulating, Gram-positive belonging to the Microbacteriaceae family. Currently exist five subspecies of C. michiganensis: insidiosus, michiganensis, nebraskensis, sepedonicus and tesselarius. C. michiganesis subsp. michiganensis and C. michiganesis subsp. sepedonicus are responsible of the main diseases that cause substantial economic losses worldwide by damaging tomatoes and potatoes. C. michiganensis subsp. sepedonicus causes bacterial ring rot disease in potatoes and C. michiganensis subsp. michiganensis is the causative agent of bacterial wilt and canker of tomatos. Other subspecies of C. michiganensis can affect other crops, including corn and alfalfa.
