Standard curves representing the quantitative detection of reference strains of C. perfringens by Amp-qPCR assay. C. perfringens ATCC 13124T, ATCC 9856, ATCC 3624, ATCC 3626, ATCC 12917, ATCC 14809, ATCC 27324, and CS 052–1 were cultivated separately in Glu-mGAM. DNA fractions were extracted from the culture samples in the early stationary phase (24 h), and bacterial counts were determined microscopically with DAPI staining. 10-fold serial dilutions of DNA corresponding to the bacterial counts ranging from 100 to 105 bacterial cells were assessed by 16S rRNA gene-specific a, plc-specific b, and cpe-specific c Amp-qPCR assays. The Cq values obtained were plotted against the log10 number of bacterial cells subjected to each reaction. Data are expressed as means and standard deviations of the results from 7 strains (ATCC 13124T, ATCC 9856, ATCC 3624, ATCC 3626, ATCC 12917, ATCC 14809, and ATCC 27324) in the 16S rRNA gene-specific and plc-specific primer sets, and 3 strains (ATCC 12917, ATCC 14809, and CS 052–1) in the cpe-specific primer set
