The STD Panel Strip test is a test based on the reverse blot technique that allows the detection of 10 pathogens associated to sexually transmitted diseases.
At present, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) make up the most common group of infectious diseases that must be reported in the majority of the world’s countries. Their incidence is elevated, exceeding one million infections per day. In fact, this current trend of permanent increase, especially among young people under 25 years, makes the early and accurate diagnosis of the disease of great interest.
Although there are several microorganisms that can be transmitted by sexual contact, only few of them cause the majority of the infections. Among the most common are: Chlamydia trachomatis, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Trichomonas vaginalis and Mycoplasma (genitalium and hominis).
The majority of STDs have treatments and are curable. However, an untreated STD can lead to serious long-term health problems.
The STD Panel Strip test allows the detection of 10 pathogens associated to sexual transmitted diseases: Chlamydia trachomatis (discriminating variants L1, L2 and L3, that cause lymphogranuloma venereum), Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Mycoplasma genitalium, Trichomonas vaginalis, Ureaplasma parvum, Ureaplasma urealyticum, Mycoplasma hominis, Herpes simplex 1, Herpes simplex 2, and Treponema pallidum.
