This is a mutiplex PCR for simultaneous detection of Mycoplasma gallisepticum (MG) and M. synoviae (MS).

Mycoplasma is a slow-growing bacteria-like organism. There are lots of different types of Mycoplasma. Two types, Mycoplasma gallisepticum (MG) and Mycoplasma synoviae (MS), could make your birds sick and occasionally some birds may die from it, especially if they have other infections. 

This test has a faster turnaround time and is more sensitive than culture. 

Specimens Required
Choanal/trachea/sinus swab, isolate, respiratory tissue.
