82186-8Streptococcus agalactiae 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 Streptococcus agalactiae 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

LP14405-2   Streptococcus agalactiae
Streptococcus agalactiae (S. agalactiae) or Group B Streptococcus (GBS) is a gram-positive coccus that causes serious diseases, primarily in neonates, pregnant patients, elderly patients and those with significant underlying diseases. S. agalactiae typically presents as skin and soft tissue infections; while meningitis and endocarditis are rare presentations, they are marked with serious morbidity and mortality. Blood cultures confirm S. agalactiae presence. Chronic kidney disease, cardiac failure, history of neoplasia, history of ischemic heart disease, and diabetes mellitus are risks for acquiring agressive S. agalactiae infection.
