The VibSpp epPCR comprises a series of specific targeted reagents designed for Vibrio spp. detection by using epPCR. Vibrio is a genus of motile, Gram-negative bacteria, with a curved-rod shape belonging to Vibrionaceae family. Vibrios typically possess two chromosomes, which is unusual for bacteria, and are conserved together over time in the genus. They are commonly found in marine or estuarine environments. However, they can be found in freshwater environments as well. Several species of the Vibrio genus can cause foodborne infection, usually associated with eating undercooked seafood. Despite most disease-causing strains are associated with gastroenteritis, can also infect open wounds and cause septicaemia. Many Vibrio species are also zoonotic. They cause disease in fish and shellfish, and are common causes of mortality among marine life. Some examples of pathogenic Vibrio species include V. cholerae, V. parahaemolyticus, and V. vulnificus.
