The MycOvi dtec-qPCR comprises a series of specific targeted reagents designed for Mycoplasma ovipneumoniae detection by using qPCR. Mycoplasma ovipneumoniae is a member of the Mycoplasma genus, characterized for the lack of a cell wall around their cell membrane. M. ovipneumoniae is a respiratory pathogen of domestic sheep, domestic goats, bighorn sheep, mountain goats, and other caprine that can both cause primary atypical pneumonia and also predispose infected animals to secondary pneumonia with other agents, including Mannheimia haemolytica. Populations of M. ovipneumoniae of infected sheep are often found to have varying strains of the bacterium within one animal, but the different strains vary in virulence. The bacterium can be found within the lungs, trachea, and nasal cavity of small ruminants. Transmission of M. ovipneumoniae is primarily through a respiratory route, either direct contact or inhalation of an aerosol.
