Toxoplasma gondii

T. gondii is an obligate intracellular sporozoan; both sexual (enteroepithelial) and asexual (extraintestinal) reproductive cycles occur in felines, other species only undergo extraintestinal infection.

Most infections are asymptomatic; mild cases with a localized lymphadenopathy accompanied with fever, sore throat, rash, mimicking infectious mononucleosis in some individuals. Immunocompromised host suffers from widespread dessimination of the infection with pneumonitis, myocarditis and encephalitis. Congenital cases can result in abortion and stillbirth, live births may result in severe central nervous system involvement along with chorioretinitis.

T. gondii PCR kit is based on detection of  T. gondii DNA in total DNA isolated from white blood cells of peripheral and umbilical cord blood, biopsy and autopsy material, cerebrospinal and amniotic fluid with the exogenous Internal Control, which serves as control of DNA isolation process.

This PCR kit amplifies DNA fragment of the T. gondii non-structural gene (JOE/Yellow/HEX channel) and cloned lambda-phage used as exogenous Internal Control (FAM/Green channel).

Sensitivity of the kit is 4 cells/ml.
