The LepInt dtec-qPCR comprises a series of species-specific targeted reagents designed for Leptospira interrogans detection by using qPCR. Leptospira interrogans is a Gram-negative, obligate aerobe spirochete, with periplasmic flagella belonging to the Leptospiraceae family. L. interrogans is the causative agent of leptospirosis that can affect both animals and humans, being considered the most widespread zoonotic disease. Without treatment, leptospirosis can lead to kidney damage, meningitis, liver failure, respiratory distress, and in severe cases even death. The spread of the disease can be attributed to the ability of L. interrogans to thrive in soil and water without a host for extended periods of time. The disease is difficult to prevent in humans due to the high amount of variety in serovars of L. interrogans.
