Chlamydia trachomatis, Neisseria gonorrhoeae and Mycoplasma genitalium are three major bacteria involved in sexually transmitted infections (STI), and responsible for serious health outcomes. Left unidentified, these bacteria can cause similar diseases and similar complications including ectopic pregnancy and infertility. Simultaneous detection of C. trachomatis, N. gonorrhoeae and M. genitalium with molecular testing methods is important to identify the right pathogen and provide the right treatment.
STI ELITe MGB® Panel is a triplex PCR assay designed to detect and differentiate Chlamydia trachomatis, including the Swedish variant, Neisseria gonorrhoeae and Mycoplasma genitalium DNAs. The assay is CE-IVD validated on urine samples and cervical swabs*, in combination with ELITe InGenius®, a fully automated sample-to-result solution.
