The StrAga dtec-qPCR comprises a series of specific targeted reagents designed for Streptococcus agalactiae detection by using qPCR. Streptococcus agalactiae (also known as group B Streptococcus) is a Gram-positive coccus belonging to the Streptococcaceae family. S. agalactiae was originally discovered as a cause of bovine mastitis (present also in related ungulates) and is part of the normal bacterial flora colonizing the gastrointestinal tract and genitourinary tract of the human population. However, it occasionally becomes an infectious pathogen colonizing the uterus, blood, brain, and meninges. S. agalactiae poses a serious threat to lives of neonates and to lives of human, especially elderly persons and those with weakened immune systems. This microorganism is considered one of the major causes of economic losses to dairy producers without a control program.
