Kudoa sp. PCR Deetection Kit
Kudoa sp. is a myxosporean parasite. The majority of Kudoa species infect the somatic muscle of marine and estuarine fish establishing cysts, which contain many spores. While the parasite is within a muscle fibre, it is undetected by the host?s immunological system. Deterioration occurs rapidly after salmon are killed and there is no known cure.
