IVD Test Reagent/Kits, Molecular Assay, Infection, Bacteria, Leptospira Species, DNA
Definition : Molecular assay reagents intended to identify species of Leptospira, a genus of finely coiled, motile bacteria of the family Leptospiraceae, by detecting specific genetic information of the deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) of the target bacteria. Some species of these bacteria are the etiologic agents of leptospirosis, a disease acquired directly by contact with the urine or tissue of an infected animal (e.g., rodents, dogs) or indirectly by contact with contaminated water, soil, or vegetation.
