Title 21Chapter ISubchapter HPart 866Subpart D → §866.3350


Title 21: Food and Drugs
PART 866—IMMUNOLOGY AND MICROBIOLOGY DEVICES
Subpart D—Serological Reagents


§866.3350   Leptospira spp. serological reagents.

(a) Identification. Leptospira spp. serological reagents are devices that consist of antigens and antisera used in serological tests to identify antibodies to Leptospira spp. in serum or identify Leptospira spp. from cultured isolates derived from clinical specimens. Additionally, some of these antisera are conjugated with a fluorescent dye (immunofluorescent reagents) and used to identify Leptospira spp. directly from clinical specimens. The identification aids in the diagnosis of leptospirosis caused by bacteria belonging to the genus Leptospira and provides epidemiological information on this disease. Leptospira infections range from mild fever-producing illnesses to severe liver and kidney involvement producing hemorrhage and dysfunction of these organs.

(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.
