Chlamydia trachomatis (CT)

Chlamydia trachomatis is the most frequently reported bacterial sexually transmitted disease (STD) in many countries in Europe, according to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), and the second most leading cause of sexually transmitted diseases worldwide. The consequences of an untreated chlamydial infection can be severe, leading to urethritis, conjunctivitis or infertility, among other conditions. With robust internal controls and by simultaneously  amplifying and detecting two different bacterial genome and plasmid regions, Roche designed tests to detect known variants associated with clinical Chlamydia trachomatis infections, including the Swedish mutant strain.
