Bacillus anthracis

Bacillus anthracis is typically a disease of herbivores, although it can affect other animals as well. Infection in humans traditionally has been much rarer than infection in animals. Humans can become infected with anthrax by handling products from infected animals or by breathing in anthrax spores from infected animal products. In humans, there are three possible forms of the disease anthrax - cutaneous anthrax, inhalation anthrax and intestinal anthrax.

Bacillus anthracis PCR kit is an in vitro nucleic acid amplification test for qualitative detection of vegetative and cryptogamic forms of B. anthracis DNA in biological material and environmental compartments as well as for determination of B. anthracis plasmid composition by identification of pagA (plasmid pXO1) and capA (plasmid pXO2) genes by using Real-Time PCR method.

For detection, 3 channels - FAM/Green, JOE/Yellow/ HEX and ROX/Orange are needed.
