IVD Test Reagent/Kits, Serology, Bacteria, Salmonella Species, Antigen
Definition : Serology reagents used in tests intended to detect antigens that permit the identification of strains of species of Salmonella bacteria; some reagents may detect surface antigens external to the cell wall (capsular antigens). Salmonella bacteria that are pathologic to humans are classified based on their constituent antigens (serotypes) in three types: S. typhi, the cause of typhoid fever; S. choleraesuis, associated with paratyphoid, gastroenteritis, and septicemia; and S. enteritidis (which includes all other serotypes except the first two), also associated with paratyphoid, gastroenteritis, and septicemia.
