Abstract

This study was conducted to develop a diagnostic real time PCR assay for the rapid detection of Leptospira sp. that can become a contaminant in L3 larvae used in vaccine production of lungworm (Dictyocaulus viviparus) for cattle. A 10-fold diluton series was prepared on genomic DNA extracted from ...
