Reagents, Molecular Assay, Infection, Parasite, Taenia Species, DNA

Definition : Molecular assay reagents intended to identify species of Taenia, a large tapeworm parasite of the family Taeniidae, by detecting specific genetic information of the deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) of the target parasite and/or its eggs. Several species of Taenia are parasitic to the human intestines; T. solium and, less frequently, T. 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 mostly transmitted to humans via inadequately cooked pork or beef.
