Reagents, Molecular Assay, Infection, Parasite, Taenia solium, DNA
Definition : Molecular assay reagents intended to identify Taenia solium, 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 solium is the most frequent cause of 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 usually transmitted to humans via inadequately cooked pork.
