URLY (Ureaplasma urealyticum) qPCR Detection Kit


Ureaplasma urealyticum is a bacterium commonly found in the urogenital tracts of human beings, but overgrowth can lead to infections that cause the patient discomfort. Unlike most bacteria, Ureaplasma urealyticum lacks a cell wall, making it unique in physiology and medical treatment. It causes infection of the urinary tract and vagina. It can be passed from mother to infant during birth, or be sexually transmitted. It can be found in cultures in cases of pelvic inflammatory disease. Infection with Ureaplasma urealyticum can contribute to neonatal infection and negative birth outcomes.

More Information

Did you know...?

Ureaplasma is a sexually transmitted bacterium. Responsible for causing genital and urinary infections, it is very easy to become infected – it is enough to have unprotected sexual intercourse with an infected person. It is estimated that up to 70% of sexually active women of childbearing age are infected with ureaplasma. Ureaplasma can also be caught in childbirth – when a baby passes through the birth canal of an infected mother. Epidemiological data indicate that Ureaplasma urealytic can be transmitted to 18-55% of newborns whose mothers are carriers of this pathogen.

Why knowledge about Ureaplasma is important?

The most common symptoms include: painful and frequent urination, urge to empty bladder, burning and pain in the urethra, problems with passing urine properly and emptying a full bladder. Complications of untreated ureoplasma include prostatitis in men, decreased sperm viability or infertility, inflammation of the cervical and ovarian canals, fetal infection and abnormal development of the child, premature birth or miscarriage.

How the test is performed?

In the diagnosis of Ureaplasma, 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. 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.
