Due to its high infection rate and co-infection cases, it is important to find the exact causative pathogens of STI. Moreover, STI shows no symptoms in many cases, so there is a high risk of being left untreated. If not treated in a timely manner, STI can cause complications such as ectopic pregnancy, infertility, chronic pelvic pain, or neonatal infection, so regular testing is crucial for early prevention. For Mycoplasma hominis (MH) and Ureaplasma urealyticum (UU), quantitative information is essential for determining pathogenicity, as they need to be distinguished from their commensal levels.
Allplex™ STI Essential Assay Q (MH, UU) is a multiplex real-time PCR assay that can identify 7 major pathogens (CT/NG/MG/TV/MH/UU/UP) that can cause STI. This assay enables comprehensive testing of STI with its ability to accurately detect causative pathogens. Also, it provides quantitative information on Mycoplasma hominis (MH) and Ureaplasma urealyticum (UU) for appropriate diagnosis and treatment.
