Title 21Chapter ISubchapter HPart 866Subpart D → §866.3085

Title 21: Food and Drugs
Subpart D—Serological Reagents

§866.3085   Brucella spp. serological reagents.

(a) Identification. Brucella spp. serological reagents are devices that consist of antigens and antisera used for serological identification of Brucella spp. from cultured isolates derived from clinical specimens or to identify antibodies to Brucella spp. in serum. Additionally, some of these reagents consist of antisera conjugated with a fluorescent dye (immunofluorescent reagents) used to identify Brucella spp. directly from clinical specimens or cultured isolates derived from clinical specimens. The identification aids in the diagnosis of brucellosis (e.g., undulant fever, Malta fever) caused by bacteria belonging to the genus Brucella and provides epidemiological information on diseases caused by these microorganisms.

(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.
