Ureaplasma parvum monoclonal antibodies
Ureaplasma are very small free-living bacteria that, like the Mycoplasmas, have no cell walls. Named for their metabolic utilisation of urea, the bacteria possess a small simple genome. Ureaplasma parvum is the species found in the human urogenital tract. Its presence has been associated with several conditions including urethritis, pelvic inflammatory disease, congenital pneumonia and neonatal meningitis. ViroStat has introduced a set of new monoclonal antibodies to U. parvum for applications in ELISA and IFA.
