The MycHyop dtec-qPCR comprises a series of specific targeted reagents designed for Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae detection by using qPCR. Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae is a type of bacteria that has a small genome and does not contain a cell wall. M. hyopneumoniae is a species of bacteria known to cause the disease porcine enzootic pneumonia, a highly contagious and chronic disease affecting pigs. This microorganism uses the cilia of epithelial cells lining the lungs as its host. Once attached, it causes cilia to stop functioning, and eventually leads to death of epithelial cells, causing lesions found in pigs infected with enzootic pneumonia (EP). EP is known to cause weight loss in pigs, leading to millions of dollars of losses in the livestock industry.
