The MycHrh dtec-qPCR comprises a series of specific targeted reagents designed for Mycoplasma hyorhinis detection by using qPCR. Mycoplasma hyorhinis is a member of the Mycoplasmatales family. This bacterium is often found as a commensal in the respiratory tract of pigs. It is thought to facilitate and exacerbate the development of diseases such as porcine enzootic pneumonia and porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome. Rarely, it may cause mycoplasma arthritis, mycoplasmal polyserositis or mycoplasma septicaemia in piglets without the involvement of other bacteria. Less specific signs include pyrexia, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, neurological and respiratory signs. Over the last few years the incidence of arthritis associated with M. hyorhinis has increased, becoming an important pathogen in modern swine-production systems.
