A7 Agar

Agar plates for specific culture, enumeration and morphological identification of urogenital mycoplasma.

The A7 Agar enables the culture, semi-quantitative enumeration and the morphological identification (solid method) of Ureaplasma urealyticum (U.u.) and Mycoplasma hominis (M.h.) from endocervical, urethral, urinary and sperm samples, as well as gastric secretions and other samples likely to contain urogenital mycoplasma infection.

MYCOFAST® US

Detection, identification, and enumeration of urogenital mycoplasma in one simple test.

MYCOFAST® US has been designed for the detection, identification, and enumeration of Ureaplasma urealiticum (U.u.) and Mycoplasma hominis (M.h.) in endocervical, urethral, urinary, gastric,and sperm specimens.

  • All-in-one test
  • Ready-to-use reagents, “all-liquid” method
  • High sensitivity and specificity
  • Fast results for clinicians, available within 24 hours
  • Visual colorimetric method, without expert interpretation

Featuring ready-to-use reagents and an “all liquid” method, MYCOFAST® US identifies the growth of U.u. and M.h. after 24 hours of incubation. Our exclusive growth activator, the M.h. Supplement, guarantees fast and accurate results.

Serology MUG

Complementary immunological test to the direct detection of urogenital mycoplasma.

The SEROLOGY kit enables the quantitative detection in serum of the antibodies against the principal urogenital mycoplasma species, Ureaplasma urealyticum (U.u.) and Mycoplasma hominis (M.h.).

Given their lack of immunogenicity, serological testing of mycoplasmas does not replace direct diagnosis from patient specimens but is a pertinent complementary test. The serologic test for urogenital mycoplasmas is especially use to diagnose a deep genital infection, like salpingitis or prostatitis. The technique of metabolic inhibition using lyophilized reagents and reference strains is the most appropriate technique for use by non-specialized laboratories.

More than being the fastest technology available for Mycoplasma serology testing, our SEROLOGY test offers:

  • Simple methodology with no prior treatment of serum
  • High sensitivity and specificity
  • Fast results for clinicians, available within 24 hours
  • Visual colorimetric method, without expert interpretation
  • Control serum standard included in the kit
