Reagents, Molecular Assay, Infection, Parasite, Taenia saginata, DNA
Definition : Molecular assay reagents intended to identify Taenia saginata, 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. Taenia saginata may cause cysticercosis; these parasites live in adult form in human intestines and in larval form (forming cysts) in the muscles and the central nervous system. Taenia saginata parasites are usually transmitted to humans via inadequately cooked beef.
