New Real-Time PCR Test for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea Receives CE Mark Certification

25-Jan-2006

Abbott announced that a highly sensitive new test for the simultaneous detection of the sexually transmitted pathogens Chlamydia trachomatis (CT) and Neissera gonorrhoeae (NG) has received CE Mark certification, allowing it to be marketed in the European Union. The test is designed for use on the Abbott m2000(TM), an automated instrument using magnetic particle and real-time PCR (polymerase chain reaction) technology. Amplified nucleic acid tests for detection of chlamydia and gonorrhea are accurate and, unlike conventional methods, can be performed non-invasively on urine samples.

The Abbott RealTime CT/NG test will be offered in Europe by Abbott as part of its alliance with Celera Diagnostics.
