IVD Test Reagent/Kits, Molecular Assay, Infection, Fungi/Yeast, Pneumocystis jiroveci, DNA
Definition : Molecular assay reagents intended to identify Pneumocystis jiroveci (formerly known as Pneumocystis carinii sp. hominis), a yeast-like species of imperfect fungi of the family Pneumocystidaceae, by detecting specific genetic information of the deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) of the target microorganism. P. jiroveci fungi are opportunistic pathogens of the respiratory tract, especially in immunocompromised patients.
