CT and NG multiplex assay with flexible order capability
A qualitative multiplex assay that simultaneously detects two CT independent DNA targets – one in the cryptic plasmid and the other on the CT genome. This design can detect infections caused by the wild type CT, the Swedish variant (nvCT), and other Chlamydia strains that may harbor deletions in the cryptic plasmid, or those that do not carry the cryptic plasmid.
DR-9, a direct repeat region and target of the NG assay, makes it highly specific to the NG species. No cross reactivity with commensal Neisseria or other bacterial species has been observed with the NG assay.
This test is an in vitro nucleic acid amplification test for the qualitative detection of Chlamydia trachomatis (CT) and/or Neisseria gonorrhoeae (NG) in patient specimens.* The test utilizes amplification of target DNA by the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) and nucleic acid hybridization for the detection of C. trachomatis and N. gonorrhoeae. This test is intended to be used as a diagnostic as well as a screening tool.
