Among the nine species of Bordetella identified to date, only four members (B. pertussis, B. parapertussis, B. holmesii, B. bronchiseptica) have been associated with respiratory infections in humans and others mammals. Bordetella is a Gram-negative encapsulated coccobacillus of the genus Bordetella, and the causative agent of the respiratory infection named pertussis or whooping cough. The infection occurs mostly in children under the age of one when they are unimmunized, or children with faded immunity, normally around the ages between 11 and 18 years old. The signs and symptoms are similar to a common cold: runny nose, sneezing, mild cough, and low-grade fever.

R-DiaBorPPTM will be validated on geneLEAD VIII and designed to qualitatively detect Bordetella pertussis & Bordetella parapertussis in biological samples (bronchoalveolar lavage fluid, sputum, nasopharyngeal specimens) collected from patients showing symptoms related to this pathogen using real-time PCR .
