BactoReal® Kit Streptococcus spp. is a real-time PCR assay for detection of DNA of species of the genus
Streptococcus. This test was developed and validated for the ABI PRISM® 7500 (Fast) instrument (Applied
Biosystems), LightCycler® 480 (Roche) and Mx3005P® (Agilent), but is also suitable for other real-time PCR instruments. This test allows the rapid and sensitive detection of DNA of Streptococcus spp. from samples purified from biopsies, blood, swabs, milk, etc. Extraction is recommended with InstaGene Matrix (Bio-Rad) or with QIAamp Viral RNA Mini Kit (Qiagen) to avoid contamination with streptococci.
