Reagents, Molecular Assay, Infection

Definition : Molecular assay reagents intended to identify pathogenic microorganisms (e.g., bacteria, viruses, parasites) by detecting specific genetic information (e.g., ribosomal RNA, plasmids, specific DNA sequences) of the target microorganism. These tests are typically used when an in vitro culture is not possible or useful.
