IVD Test Reagent/Kits, Molecular Assay, Infection, Bacteria, Haemophilus influenzae, rRNA
Definition : Molecular assay reagents intended to identify Haemophilus influenzae, a bacterium of the family Pasteurellaceae, by detecting specific genetic information of the ribosomal ribonucleic acid (rRNA) of the target bacteria. These bacteria induce an inflammatory response that causes diseases. Encapsulated (polysaccharide) organisms of Haemophilus influenzae type B cause bacteremia and acute bacterial meningitis; occasionally, they may cause epiglottitis (obstructive laryngitis), cellulitis, osteomyelitis, joint infections, and bacterial pneumonia in children.
