Sec. 866.3830 Treponema pallidumtreponemal test reagents.

(a)Identification. Treponema pallidum treponemal test reagents are devices that consist of the antigens, antisera and all control reagents (standardized reagents with which test results are compared) which are derived from treponemal sources and that are used in the fluorescent treponemal antibody absorption test (FTA-ABS), theTreponema pallidum immobilization test (T.P.I.), and other treponemal tests used to identify antibodies toTreponema pallidum directly from infecting treponemal organisms in serum. The identification aids in the diagnosis of syphilis caused by bacteria belonging to the genusTreponema and provides epidemiological information on syphilis.

(b)Classification. Class II (performance standards).
