PART 866 -- IMMUNOLOGY AND MICROBIOLOGY DEVICES

Subpart D--Serological Reagents

Sec. 866.3165 Cryptococcus neoformansserological reagents.

(a)Identification. Cryptococcus neoformans serological reagents are devices that consist of antigens used in serological tests to identify antibodies toCryptococcus neoformans in serum. Additionally, some of these reagents consist of antisera conjugated with a fluorescent dye (immunofluorescent reagents) and are used to identifyCryptococcus neoformans directly from clinical specimens or from cultured isolates derived from clinical specimens. The identification aids in the diagnosis of cryptococcosis and provides epidemiological information on this type of disease. Cryptococcosis infections are found most often as chronic meningitis (inflammation of brain membranes) and, if not treated, are usually fatal.

(b)Classification. Class II (special controls). The device is exempt from the premarket notification procedures in subpart E of part 807 of this chapter subject to 866.9.
