Abstract

Real-time PCR was used to detect and quantify Mycobacterium bovis cells in\ud naturally infected soil and badger faeces. Immunomagnetic capture,\ud immunofluorescence and selective culture confirmed species identification and cell\ud viability. These techniques will prove useful for monitoring M. bovis in the\ud environment and for elucidating transmission routes between wildlife and cattle
