  • Intended for human serum and citrate plasma
  • A mixture of highly specific recombinant antigens was used to achieve high assay specificity

Chlamydia is caused by the gram-negative, obligate intracellular bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis. Globally, it is the most prevalent sexually transmitted bacterial infection. The organism causes genitourinary infections in women and men, the disease often remains asymptomatic. Sexually active young people between 15 and 30 years of age are most at risk of chlamydia. The most common complications are pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) and salpingitis, conditions that can lead to infertility in both men and women and extra-uterine pregnancies. Cervical chlamydia infection is currently considered to be one of the risk factors for uterine cervix carcinoma.

Once detected, the infection is easily treated by a short course of antibiotic therapy.
