Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) is an infection that can be transferred from one person to another by means of sexual contact,
including oral sex, anal sex, and sharing sex toys. Chlamydia infection is a common sexually transmitted infection in human caused by the bacterium
Chlamydia trachomatis. Neisseria gonorrhoeae is pathogenic to humans who are its only natural host, and it is responsible for the disease Gonorrhea.
Symptoms of infection with N. gonorrhoeae differ,
depending on the site of infection. Ureaplasma urealyticum is part of the normal genital flora of both men and women.
It is found in about 70% of sexually active humans. Mycoplasma genitalium is an emerging sexually transmitted pathogen implicated in urethritis
in men and several inflammatory reproductive tract syndromes in women. Depending on the disease, some untreated STIs can lead to infertility,
chronic pain or even death. Early identification and treatment results in less chance to spread disease and for some conditions may improve the
outcomes of treatment.
The AccuPower® STI8A-Plex Real-Time PCR Kit is an in vitro diagnostic kit designed for the simultaneous detection of Chlamydia trachomatis,
Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Ureaplasma urealyticum and Mycoplasma genitalium DNA in human samples such as urine, vaginal swab and urethral swab through
real-time PCR using ExiStation™ Molecular Diagnostic System or Exicycler™ 96.
