Serum, plasma, tissue homogenates, other biological fluids
This kit is designed for the quantitative in vitro determination of Human Neisseria gonorrhoeae antibody concentrations in human serum, plasma, tissue homogenates or other biological fluids.
The kit should be stored between 2°C and 8°C. The kit containing the reagents with designated shelf life should be stored between 2°C and 8°C and should be returned to the refrigerator as soon as possible after use.
Intra-assay CV(%) and Inter-assay CV(%)are less than 15%.
1.25 ng/ml – 40 ng/ml.
The minimum detection concentration is less than 0.1 ng/ml.
Gonorrhea (colloquially known as the clap) is a common human sexually transmitted infection caused by the bacterium Neisseria gonorrhoeae. The usual symptoms in men are burning with urination and penile discharge. Women, on the other hand, are asymptomatic half the time or have vaginal discharge and pelvic pain. In both men and women if gonorrhea is left untreated, it may spread locally causing epididymitis or pelvic inflammatory disease or throughout the body, affecting joints and heart valves. Treatment is commonly with ceftriaxone as antibiotic resistance has developed to many previously used medications. This is typically given in combination with either azithromycin or doxycycline. There have been some strains of gonorrhea showing resistance to ceftriaxone.
