STI Multiplex Array
Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) have become a wearisome issue for healthcare systems across the globe. Early and correct diagnosis of STIs is essential as they can lead to other major health issues. Undiagnosed STIs can spread uncontrollably.
With the ability to simultaneously detect 10 STI pathogens, the STI array far exceeds other STI tests currently available. Its rapid multiplexing capabilities allow it to detect the following pathogens: chlamydia trachomonas, neisseria gonorrhea, trichomonas vaginalis, treponema pallidum, herpes simplex I, herpes simplex II, mycoplasma hominis, mycoplasma genitalium, ureaplasm urealyticum, haemophilus ducreyi.
Through simultaneous testing for multiple STI pathogens, specific viral, protozoan or bacterial pathogens can be identified, thus resulting in a targeted antibiotic response. This can also identify secondary infections which could have been missed.
