The XanCam dtec-qPCR comprises a series of specific targeted reagents designed for Xanthomonas campestris detection by using qPCR. Xanthomonas campestris is an aerobic, rod-shaped, Gram-negative bacterium belonging to the Xanthomonadaceae family. It is known to cause the black rot in crucifers by darkening the vascular tissues, producing great loss in agriculture. Host associated, over 20 different pathovars of X. campestris have been identified by their distinctive pathogenicity on a wide range of plants including crops and wild plants. They can live in a soil for over a year and spread through any movement of water including rain, irrigation and surface water. However, once the plant has been infected, X. campestris will eventually spread to the seed stalk inhibiting the growth of a healthy offspring.
