The HepSpp dtec-qPCR comprises a series of species-specific targeted reagents designed for detection of Hepatozoon spp. species by using qPCR. Hepatozoon is a genus of Apicomplexan protozoa which incorporates over 300 species of intraerythrocytic obligate parasites. Despite their prevalence in amphibians and reptiles, the genus is better known in veterinary circles for causing a tick-borne disease called hepatozoonosis in some mammals. Hepatozoonosis results when an animal eats an infected tick (the disease is not spread by tick bites). Some species included are Hepatozoon muris and Hepatozoon canis, which typically infect mice and dogs.
