qPCR Detection Kit
Chlamydia trachomatis is a bacterium that causes chlamydia, which can manifest in various ways, including: trachoma, lymphogranuloma venereum, nongonococcal urethritis, cervicitis, salpingitis and pelvic inflammatory disease. Chlamydia trachomatis is the most common infectious cause of blindness and the most common sexually transmitted bacterium. Different types of Chlamydia trachomatis cause different diseases. The most common strains cause disease in the genital tract, while other strains cause disease in the eye or lymph nodes.

Did you know...?
Chlamydiosis is one of the most commonly transmitted sexually diseases and at the same time one of the leading causes of infertility in the world. Symptoms of the disease may appear 1-3 weeks after infection, but chlamydiosis is often asymptomatic. Every year there are about 131 million people diagnosed with chamidiosis.
Why the knowledge about Chlamydia trachomatis is important?
Chlamydia infection does not always cause symptoms, but it has serious consequences for the health of women and men, including frequent infections, joint problems, inflammation of the urethra, uterus and epididymis. It may carry a risk of miscarriage, early delivery and infertility. Symptoms may not appear until several weeks after infection.
How the test is performed?
In the diagnosis of Chlamydia trachomatis, PCR techniques are primarily used to confirm or exclude the presence of the pathogen in the tested material. The advantage of PCR over other methods is unambiguous – the sensitivity and specificity of the test is over 99%, and the method allows the detection of a very small number of bacteria. Genetic material analysis using our reagents is fast and accurate. Following the IFU included in the kit, the lab technician can easily interpret the results. The reaction lasts about 45 min, and the temperature-time profile is selected so that the laboratory can analyze several genes simultaneously using one device. Ready-to-use reagents are included in the kit. It is enough for the lab technician to add each of them in the right proportion and the reaction is ready. Quickly, easily and professionally.
Why is it worth doing a genetic test?
Quick diagnosis will enable the implementation of treatment. Only by means of a genetic test are we able to detect the presence of the pathogen with 100% accuracy.
What can be done after the test result?
Treatment for both men and women is similar. Appropriate antibiotics prescribed by a doctor are used. The partner must also undergo treatment in order to prevent reinfection and the spread of the disease. After using the drugs, it is best to make a follow-up visit, you can also return the sample for testing. Once treated, however, the infection has a tendency to recur.
