The OrnRhi epPCR comprises a series of specific targeted reagents designed for Ornithobacterium rhinotracheale detection by using epPCR. Ornithobacterium rhinotracheale is a Gram-negative and pleomorphic bacterium that has been associated with outbreaks of respiratory disease in turkey-breeders, egglayer hens, turkeys, broiler breeder and chicken meats. The most commonly infections are respiratory signs. These include nasal discharge, dyspnoea, sneezing and coughing. A drop-in growth rates, abnormal egg production and joint problems may also be seen. There are reports of gastrointestinal and neurological symptoms in some cases. Clinical signs are generally worse in meat producing birds. O. rhinotracheale is found worldwide, and the bacterium may be spread between birds either horizontally or vertically.
