NEGO (Neisseria gonorrhoeae) qPCR Detection Kit


Neisseria gonorrhoeae is a species of Gram-negative diplococci bacteria. It causes the sexually transmitted genitourinary infection gonorrhea as well as other forms of gonococcal disease including disseminated gonococcemia, septic arthritis, and gonococcal ophthalmia neonatorum. Neisseria gonorrhoeae can cause infection of the genitals, throat, and eyes. Asymptomatic infection is common in males and females. Untreated infection may spread to the rest of the body (disseminated gonorrhea infection), especially the joints (septic arthritis). Untreated infection in women may cause pelvic inflammatory disease and possible infertility due to the resulting scarring.

More Information

Did you know...?

Neisseria gonorrhoeae is a Gram-negative diplococci bacteria. It causes sexually transmitted genitourinary infection - gonorrhea. Other forms of gonococcal disease include disseminated gonococcemia, septic arthritis, gonococcal ophthalmia neonatorum. Infection may coexist with other sexually transmitted diseases, for example co-infection with Chlamydia trachomatis.

Why knowledge about Neisseria gonorrhoeae is important?

Gonorrhoea is a very common disease. The infection in adults is mainly transmitted through sexual contact: vaginal, oral or anal sex. It is also possible to transmit infection to the newborn during passage through the birth canal. Clinical manifestation is different in men and women. The primary symptoms in men are: dysuria (burning with urination), increased urge to urniate, purulent discharge from the penis. In women the main symptoms include increased vagnial discharge, dysuria, lower abdominal pain, pain with intercourse, menstrual abnormalities. Neisseria gonorrhoeae can also cause infection of the throat and eyes. In some cases infection is asymptomatic, which is especially dangerous in pregnant women due to the risk of transmission to the newborn. That is why all pregnant women should be tested for gonorrhea infection.

How the test is performed?

In the diagnosis of Neisseria gonorrhoeae, 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.
