79382-8Campylobacter coli+jejuni+lari fusA gene [Presence] in Stool by NAA with probe detectionActive

Term Description

This test targets the fusA gene that is common to three species in the Campylobacter group -- coli, jejuni and lari -- and does not distinguish between the three species. This term was created for, but is not limited in use to, Nanosphere's Verigene Enteric Pathogens Nucleic Acid Test, which is intended for the detection and identification of common pathogenic enteric bacteria, viruses, and genetic virulence markers in stool specimens from individuals with signs and symptoms of gastrointestinal infection.

Part Descriptions

LP200477-0   Campylobacter coli+jejuni+lari fusA gene
Campylobacter (meaning 'twisted bacteria') is a genus of bacteria that are Gram-negative, spiral, and microaerophilic. Motile, with either uni- or bi-polar flagella, the organisms have a characteristic spiral/corkscrew appearance and are oxidase-positive. Campylobacter jejuni is now recognized as one of the main causes of bacterial foodborne disease in many developed countries. At least a dozen species of Campylobacter have been implicated in human disease, with C. jejuni and C. coli the most common. C. fetus causes spontaneous abortions in cattle and sheep, and is an opportunistic pathogen in humans. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License.

LP99310-2   Campylobacter
Campylobacter species is a gram-negative comma or S-shaped motile bacteria. Most infections occur from eating raw or undercooked poultry or by touching a contaminated object. Other sources of Campylobacter include water, animals, and unpasteurized milk. Symptoms begin 2-5 days after being exposed and include bloody diarrhea, fever, abdominal cramps, nausea, and vomiting. Some people are asymptomatic. Campylobacter can spread to the bloodstream and cause life-threatening illness in immunocompromised patients. C jejuni is the primary species found in campylobacter infections. Campylobacter is identified in stool, body tissue, and fluid cultures.[https://www.cdc.gov/campylobacter/faq.html] Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License.
