The MorBovc dtec-qPCR comprises a series of specific targeted reagents designed for Moraxella bovoculi detection by using qPCR. Moraxella bovoculi is a Gram-negative, non-motile bacterium belonging to the Moraxellaceae family. Recently, M. bovoculi has been described associated with the infectious bovine keratoconjuntivitis, usually caused by M. bovis, an eye disease of cattle also known as pinkeye or New Forest eye. It is the most common ocular disease of cattle and manifests as corneal ulceration and oedema, ocular pain, photophobia and lacrimation. Animals that recover develop varying degrees of corneal scarring, while permanent blindness follows corneal rupture in severe cases. Genetic studies suggest that different strain types of M. bovoculi may not be associated with infectious bovine keratoconjuntivitis.
