DiaPlexQ™ CT / NG Detection Kit

The 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.
