The HisSom dtec-qPCR comprises a series of specific targeted reagents designed for Histophilus somni detection by using qPCR. Histophilus somni (formerly known as Haemophilus somnus, Haemophilus agni and Histophilus ovis) is a small, rod-shaped, non-motile, Gram-negative bacterium belonging to Pasteurellaceae family. H. somni is a parasitic organism that typically lives as a commensal organism in its host. It is commonly found in upper respiratory tract, prepuce and vagina of cattle and can also be found circulating in the bloodstream. This organism has 3 primary forms: reproductive tract, urinary tract and respiratory tract; causing a wide variety of diseases ranging from pneumonia, abortion, arthritis, myocarditis, and septicaemia in cattle, sheep, and American bison. It is able to spread throughout cattle herds undetected until symptoms begin to occur.
