Feline Hemoplasmas Universal Real-time PCR Test Kit is to detect mycoplasmas nucleic acid in cat blood, which is rapid, accurate and easy-to-operate. Sensitivity 100%, Specificity 100%.
Feline Hemoplasmas is the term used to describe a disease caused by a group of specialised bacteria (called mycoplasmas) that infect red blood cells in the circulation. At least three different haemoplasma species have been identified in cats and these are called: Mycoplasma haemofelis；Mycoplasma haemominutum, and Mycoplasma turicensis.
This kit uses fluorescence probe PCR (RT-PCR) method to detect the deserved gene of Mycoplasmas, which is helpful for diagnosis, monitoring and epidemiological investigation of Mycoplasmas.

what is Feline Hemoplasmas？
Haemotropic mycoplasmas (haemoplasmas) are small, uncultivatable bacteria that parasitise erythrocytes of many domestic and wild animal species, including humans.1,2 From the 20 or so species of haemoplasmas currently reported, three species are well recognised to infect cats.3,4 Feline haemoplasma species vary in their pathogenicity5 and can present with a wide spectrum of clinical disease, from severe, life-threatening haemolytic anaemia to non-symptomatic carrier states.4Mycoplasma haemofelis (Mhf) is widely regarded as the most pathogenic of the feline haemoplasmas, with both acute experimental and natural infection resulting in moderate-to-severe haemolytic anaemia.
