Tritrichomonas foetus


The TriFoe dtec-qPCR comprises a series of species-specific targeted reagents designed for detection of Tritrichomonas foetus by using qPCR. Tritrichomonas foetus is a single celled flagellated protozoan parasite that is known to be a pathogen of the bovine reproductive tract as well as the intestinal tract of cats. In cattle, the organism is transmitted to the female vagina and uterus from the foreskin of the bull where the parasite is known to reside. It causes infertility, and, at times, has caused spontaneous abortions in the first trimester. In cats, T. foetus mainly causes diarrhoea by colonisation of the large intestine. Recovery is slow but longterm prognosis is good.
