85766-4Streptococcus sp DNA [Presence] by NAA with non-probe detection in Positive blood cultureActive

Term Description

Qualitative detection of nucleic acid sequences in Streptococcus species DNA in positive blood culture specimens by target amplification and non-probe detection methods, such as melt curve analysis. This assay does not differentiate between Streptococcus species. This term was created for, but not limited in use to, the submitter's test kit, FilmArray Blood Culture Identification panel v2.

Part Descriptions

LP17202-0   Streptococcus sp
Streptococcus are a genus of spherical or ovoid bacteria whose organisms occur in pairs or chains. They are catalase negative,non-spore-forming, facultative anaerobes. Many species are commensals or parasites on man or animals, whereas some species, like Streptococcus pneumoniae and Streptococcus pyogenes are well characterized pathogens. A few species are saprophytes and occur in the natural environment. Source: National Library of Medicine, MeSH 2006

LP17202-0   Streptococcus sp
Streptococcus is a genus of spherical Gram-positive bacteria belonging to the lactic acid bacteria group. Most streptococci are oxidase- and catalase-negative, and many are facultative anaerobes. In the medical setting, the most important groups are the alpha-hemolytic streptococci S. pneumoniae and Streptococcus Viridans-group, and the beta-hemolytic streptococci of Lancefield groups A and B (also known as "Group A strep" and "Group B strep"). Other beta-hemolytic groups include C, D (enterococci), F, G, and H. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License.
