ID Gene™ Paratuberculosis Duplex

Real-time PCR for the relative qualitative or quantitative detection of Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis in ruminant faeces (individual samples or pools of up to 10), boot swabs or mycobacterial culture.

This relative qualitative or quantitative duplex test simultaneously amplifies a target sequence in the Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis (Map) genome and an exogenous internal control.



  • Superior sensitivity to facilitate detection of infected animals and identify new herd breakdowns
  • The most reliable qPCR thanks to:
    – an exogenous mycobacterial control to confirm pathogen lysis and verify the absence of PCR inhibitors
    – a calibrated positive control to detect variations in analytical sensitivity
  • Manage culling priorities and differentiate between passive carriers and chronically-infected animals thanks to a positive control calibrated at 3000 Map / gr of faeces
  • Easiest sample preparation protocol on the market, without any weighing step


Other features:

  • High performance: DLPCR< 30 copies / PCR and specificity of 100%.
  • Rapid (1 hour) or standard (2 hour) amplification protocols
  • Compatible with most extraction systems (magnetic beads, silica columns) and with all thermocyclers
  • Uses the same extraction and amplification protocols common to all ID Gene PCR tests so that other pathogens (DNA or RNA) may be tested on the same plate
  • Validated by the French national reference laboratory and according to the French standard NFU47-600-2.
  • Ready-to-use reagents mean that the amplification reaction mix contains all the primers, probes and master mix required to run the qPCR.
