Reagents, Molecular Assay, Infection, Parasite, Babesia Species, DNA
Definition : Molecular assay reagents intended to identify species of Babesia, a genus of hematozoan protozoa, by detecting genetic information of the deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) of the target parasite. Some species of these parasites may cause babesiosis (piroplasmosis), a disease characterized by malaria-like fever, chills, sweats, and myalgia. The parasite is typically transmitted to humans by rodent ticks.
