Product description

Toxoplasma gondii (T. gondii) is a species of parasitic protozoa and is the causative agent of the disease Toxoplasmosis. The parasite lives intracellular in various tissues of vertebrates and is transmitted via raw food or direct contact. Usually Toxoplasmosis is minor or self-limiting but it can have serious or fatal effects on a fetus if the mother contracts the disease during pregnancy. Also for people with compromised immune system, the disease can have severe consequences. In the United States, Toxoplasmosis is considered to be the third leading cause of death attributed to foodborne illness. 

The Toxoplasma gondii (T.gondii) antigen suspension consists of approximate 2 x107 tachyzoites per ml. Parasites have been denaturated, washed and suspended in PBS with 0.1% formalin.

For laboratory use only.
