Reagents, Molecular Assay, Infection, Parasite, Taenia Species

Definition : Molecular assay reagents intended to identify species of Taenia, a large tapeworm parasite of the family Taeniidae, by detecting specific nucleic acid information of the target parasite and/or its eggs. Several species of Taenia are parasitic to the human intestines; Taenia solium and, less frequently, Taenia saginata, may cause cysticercosis; Taenia parasites live in adult form in human intestines and in larval form (forming cysts) in the muscles and the central nervous system. These parasites are usually transmitted to humans via inadequately cooked pork or beef.
