RevoDx Enterococcus Faecalis qPCR Kit
Enterococcus faecalis cause a variety of infections, including endocarditis, urinary tract infections, prostatitis, intra-abdominal infection, cellulitis, and wound infection as well as concurrent bacteremia. E. faecalis infections spread from person to person through poor hygiene. Because these bacteria are found in feces, people can transmit the infection if they don’t wash their hands after using the bathroom. The bacteria can get into food or onto surfaces such as doorknobs, telephones, and computer keyboards.
Enterococcus faecalis is a Gram-positive commensal member of the gut microbiota of a wide range of organisms. With the advent of antibiotic therapy, it has emerged as a multidrug resistant, hospital-acquired pathogen. E. faecalis genomes had a low GC content ranging from 37.0 to 38.0%. The average genome size was 2.94 ± 0.15 Mb, with 2884 ± 211 predicted ORFs.
