A real-time PCR protocol for detecting Mycobacterium bovis in feces was evaluated in bovine tuberculosis–infected African buffalo (Syncerus caffer). Fecal samples spiked with 1.42×103 cells of M. bovis culture/g and Bacille Calmette–Guérin standards with 1.58×101 genome copies/well were positive by real-time PCR but all field samples were negative.
