DiaPlexC™ CT / NG Detection Kit

The DiaPlexC™ CT/NG Detection Kit is designed to detect Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae using the Multiplex PCR technology which can detect multiple specific target genes in a single PCR.

Pathogen Information

Chlamydia, caused by Chlamydia trachomatis (CT) and gonorrhea, caused by Neisseria gonorrhoeae (NG), are the most common sexually transmitted diseases. It is known that 70% of NG infected patients are co-infected with CT. These infections may be transmitted through vaginal, anal or oral sexual contact.

Detection Technology

Conventional PCR.

Specimens

Urogenital swab specimen, Urine.
Target Organisms
Chlamydia trachomatis (CT)
Neisseria gonorrhoeae (NG)

Analytical Sensitivity

10-102 copies.

Features

HotStart PCR System: Ultra highly-specific and sensitive results.
Multiplex PCR: Multiple targets in a single reaction.
Easy-to-use Master Mix: Just add the template and primer.
