The CroSak dtec-qPCR comprises a series of specific targeted reagents designed for Cronobacter sakazakii detection by using qPCR. Cronobacter sakazakii (formerly Enterobacter sakazakii) is a rod-shaped, Gram-negative bacterium belonging to the Enterobacteriaceae family. C. sakazakii has been found in wastewater and a variety of dry foods, including powdered infant formula, skimmed milk powder, herbal teas, and starches. The majority of C. sakazakii cases are in adults, however, the disease is associated with a rare cause of invasive infection infants with historically high case fatality rates (40–80 %). In infants it can cause bacteraemia, meningitis and necrotizing enterocolitis. The bacterium is ubiquitous and can be isolated from a wide range of environments and foods.
