Reagents, Molecular Assay, Infection, Bacteria, Coxiella burnetii, DNA
Definition : Molecular assay reagents intended to identify Coxiella burnetii, a bacterium of the family Rickettsiaceae, by detecting specific genetic information of the deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) of the target bacteria. These bacteria are the etiologic agent of Q fever, an acute infection characterized by fever and chills and frequently complicated by pneumonitis, hepatitis, and endocarditis; in humans, it is typically acquired by inhalation of airborne organisms derived from infected animals.
