Toxoplasma gondii test

Toxoplasma gondii (PCR)

£70.20 per test

Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) testing identifies the presence of a pathogen’s DNA or RNA in a sample specimen. PCR is highly sensitive, that can confirm the presence of Toxoplasma gondii.

Toxoplasmosis, caused by the protozoan parasite Toxoplasma gondii, is notable for its broad impact on various domestic animals and its distinctive life cycle that prominently involves cats as definitive hosts. Within these hosts, T. gondii undergoes sexual reproduction, leading to the shedding of oocysts in cat faeces, which are highly resilient and can survive in the environment for extended periods. This durability makes them a significant source of infection for a wide range of animals and humans. The infection can lead to various health issues in domestic animals, including reproductive problems and neurological symptoms, and poses serious risks to humans. The unique epidemiological characteristics of Toxoplasmosis, driven by the role of cats in its life cycle and the environmental persistence of oocysts, underline the importance of managing this disease.
