Mycobacterium avium paratuberculosis
Paratuberculosis, more commonly known as Johne’s Disease, is a fatal bacterial disease common in dairy cattle. The organism that causes the disease can live for years in the soil of affected farms. Animals typically infected as calves can appear healthy for a long time — months or years — before symptoms appear, which allows it to spread easily when an infected animal is introduced into the herd. Often, the first symptom is a decrease in milk production.
Sample Type: Culture Medium
MYCOBACTINE J is growth factor that can be added to culture medium for bacteriological diagnosis of paratuberculosis (Johne's disease) in ruminants.
