IVD Test Reagent/Kits, Serology, Parasite, Toxoplasma gondii

Definition : Serology reagents intended to detect antibody titers or antigens of Toxoplasma gondii, a species of obligate intracellular coccidian protozoon parasite. These parasites cause toxoplasmosis, an acute or chronic disease transmitted by the feces of cats or via tissue cysts in infected meat. Most infections are mild and self-limited, but extensive damage (e.g., to the brain, eyes, cardiac muscle) may occur, especially in immunocompromised patients or in fetuses infected by transplacental transmission.

Zeus Scientific Inc

Company Type: Parent

ZEUS Scientific is a privately held corporation that was founded in 1976. The company began producing IFA (immunofluorescence assay) test systems followed ELISA and now multiplex (AtheNA Multi-Lyte) immunoassays. New products are developed to expand the menu which allows laboratories to run an increasing number of assays with common protocols and common reagents, as well as developing new tests to more accurately diagnose patients. In 1987 ZEUS Scientific was the first company to develop, receive appropriate regulatory clearance and bring to market a serological assay to test for Lyme disease – a condition with high prevalence in the local community where ZEUS Scientific is located.
