HiberGene CT/NG – provide a same-day, accurate diagnosis by testing in-house.
- Chlamydia trachomatis (CT) and Neisseria gonorrhoeae (NG) are among the most frequently transmitted sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
- It is estimated that 146 million people acquire CT and 51 million people acquire NG annually worldwide¹
- Nucleic acid amplification tests (NAATs) are now recommended by NICE, European and CDC guidelines due to superior sensitivity, specificity and speed²
- It has been reported that more than 75% of CT/NG negative patients receive antibiotics unnecessarily while awaiting results³
- Reports show that up to 30% of patients are overtreated and up to 40% are undertreated leading to medical complications and increased antibiotic resistance⁴
Benefits of HG CTNG Combo:
- Dual-target test – one test for both targets from the same sample. Treatment guidelines differ depending on which infection is present and co-infection can occur
- Accuracy – conventional techniques are notoriously inaccurate
- No repeat testing – LAMP technology is characteristically tolerant of potentially inhibitory samples
HG CT/NG Combo brings the power of molecular technology to laboratories of all kinds, ensuring adherence to the latest clinical guidelines.
