82185-0Neisseria meningitidis DNA [Presence] in Cerebral spinal fluid by NAA with non-probe detectionActive

Term Description

This assay detects the presence of nucleic acid sequences from the Neisseria meningitidis DNA in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) using PCR and non-probe based detection methods, such as melt curve analysis. This term was created for, but is not limited in use to, BioFire's FilmArray Meningitis/Encephalitis Panel, which is intended for the detection and identification of nucleic acids from multiple bacteria, viruses, and yeast directly from CSF obtained via lumbar puncture from individuals with signs and/or symptoms of meningitis and/or encephalitis.

Part Description

LP16660-0   Neisseria meningitidis
Neisseria meningitidis is a species of gram-negative, aerobic bacteria. It is a commensal and pathogen only of humans, and can be carried asymptomatically in the nasopharynx. When found in cerebrospinal fluid it is the causative agent of cerebrospinal meningitis (meningitis, meningococcal). It can also be found in venereal discharges and blood. At least 13 serogroups have been described based on antigenic differences in the capsular polysaccharides; the ones causing most meningitis infections being A, B, C, Y, and W-135. Outbreaks caused by serogroup X meningococci have also been reported. Each serogroup can be further classified by serotype, serosubtype, and immunotype.
