The MycHamm dtec-qPCR comprises a series of specific targeted reagents designed for Mycoplasma haemominutum (Candidatus) detection by using qPCR. Mycoplasma is a bacterial genus that lacks a cell wall surrounding the cell membrane. These bacteria are naturally resistant to antibiotics that target cell wall synthesisand they can colonize the outside of erythrocytes and infect a wide range of vertebrate hosts. Candidatus Mycoplasma haemominutum infects felids and, during the acute phase of the infection can induce anaemia. Infected cats can become chronic carriers after bacteraemia and the infection may be reactivated under particular conditions like immunosuppression. Molecular detection by qPCR is the most sensitive and specific way of detecting bacteria in the blood of infected animals having acute or latent infections.
