70292-8Blastocystis hominis DNA [Presence] in Stool by NAA with probe detectionActive

Term Description

This code describes molecular detection of Blastocystis hominis DNA by RT-PCR using a fluorescent probe. The primers/probe target an amplified fragment of a ribosmal subunit of B. hominis. Results are based on a cross threshold (Ct) value.

Part Description

LP146106-2   Blastocystis hominis
Blastocystis hominis (B. hominis) is a microscopic parasite that cause blastocystosis in humans. Its pathogenicity role is controversial since it is found in the stools of healthy people as well as in the stools of those who have diarrhea, abdominal pain or other gastrointestinal problems.
