IVD Test Reagent/Kits, Molecular Assay, Infection, Bacteria, Listeria Species
Definition : Molecular assay reagents intended to identify species of Listeria, a genus of bacteria that closely resemble bacteria of the family Corynebacteriaceae, by detecting specific nucleic-acid information of the target bacteria. A species of Listeria (i.e., Listeria monocytogenes) is the cause of listeriosis, which may cause in utero infections that can result in abortion, stillbirth, or premature birth; infections acquired during birth can cause cardiorespiratory distress, diarrhea, vomiting, and meningitis. Infection in adults can produce meningitis, endocarditis, and disseminated granulomatous lesions.
