IVD Test Reagent/Kits, Molecular Assay, Infection, Fungi/Yeast, Cryptococcus neoformans, rRNA
Definition : Molecular assay reagents intended to identify Cryptococcus neoformans, a yeast-like species of imperfect fungi of the family Cryptococcaceae, by detecting specific genetic information of the ribosomal ribonucleic acid (rRNA) of the target microorganism. These fungi may cause cryptococcosis, a mycotic infection of the brain and meninges, which may also involve other organs such as the skin and lungs. The disease may progress by invading the central nervous system, lungs, liver, and spleen of immunocompromised patients.
