IVD Test Reagent/Kits, Molecular Assay, Infection, Fungi/Yeast, Coccidioides immitis, rRNA
Definition : Molecular assay reagents intended to identify Coccidioides immitis, a species of imperfect fungi of the family Moniliaceae, by detecting specific genetic information of the ribosomal ribonucleic acid (rRNA) of the target microorganism. These fungi may cause coccidiomycosis, a mycotic infection of the respiratory tract characterized by allergic manifestations; it may progress to a virulent, severe, chronic granulomatous disease involving tissue, viscera, and the central nervous system in immunocompromised patients.
