This kit is detecting Anaplasma phagocytophilum in one channel and Ehrlichia chaffeensis and E. muris in the second channel.

Ehrlichiosis or human granulocytic anaplasmosis are diseases which can be caused by Anaplasma phagocytophilum, Ehrlichia chaffensis or Ehrlichia muris. Humans and other mammals are infected by bites of ticks. If the disease is symptomatic it can come to flue-like symptoms up to serious symptoms like Meningoencephalitis especially in immunosupressed patients.


The RealLine Anaplasma / Ehrlichia kits are designed for sensitive direct detection of Anaplasma phagocytophilium and of Ehrlichia muris and E. chaffensis in clinical samples by real time PCR. The kits are designed for qualitative in vitro diagnostics.
