VIASURE Real Time PCR Detection Kits

Neisseria gonorrhoeae ciprofloxacin resistant


VIASURE Neisseria gonorrhoeae ciprofloxacin resistant Real Time PCR Detection Kit is a Real Time PCR assay designed for the qualitative detection and identification of DNA from N. gonorrhoeae and/or a specific point mutation (located in the gyrA gene, changing the serine in position 91 of the wild type of genotype to phenylalanine) that generates resistance to ciprofloxacin (CIP) in N. gonorrhoeae, from isolate strains from clinical samples and clinical samples such us urethral urine, urethral swabs, endocervical swabs and rectal swab samples already characterized as N. gonorrhoeae positive (using molecular assays) of individuals suspected of gonorrhoea disease by their healthcare professional (HCP).

This test is intended for use as an aid in the diagnosis of N. gonorrhoeae infection and its potential resistance or sensitive to CIP, in combination with clinical and epidemiological risk factors.

DNA is extracted from clinical specimens, amplified using real time PCR, and detected using fluorescent reporter dye probes specific for N. gonorrhoeae and for a specific point mutation associated to CIP resistance in N. gonorrhoeae.
