Rhodococcus equi Combined PCR (VapA & ChoE)

This test detects the presence of Rhodococcus equi in various sample types through the PCR detection of the cholesterol oxidase (ChoE) gene and the Virulence associated plasmid A (VapA). Detection of ChoE indicates that R. equi is present in the sample while detection of VapA indicates that virulent R. equi is present in the sample.
