Reagents, Serology, Bacteria, Leptospira Species, Antigen
Definition : Serology reagents used in tests intended to detect antigens that permit the identification of strains of Leptospira, a genus of finely coiled, motile bacteria of the family Leptospiraceae. Leptospira interrogans is typically the species that is pathologic to humans, causing leptospirosis. Leptospirosis is acquired directly by contact with the urine or tissue of infected animals (e.g., rodents, dogs) or indirectly by contact with contaminated water, soil, or vegetation.
