Chlamydia trachomatis is one of the most common sexually transmitted pathogens. It is a major cause of cervicitis, urethritis, endometritis, and pelvic milammatory disease in women. Serious complications can result in salpingitis, infertility, and ectopic pregnancy. If transmitted to infants during birth, Chlamydia can cause conjunctivitis and pneumonia.
Chlamydia is related to gram-negative bacteria. The primary method for detection of Chlamydia is growth of the organism in cell culture. Other methods include direct fluorescence assays (DFA), enzyme immunoassay (EIA), and nucleic acid probing. The Chlamydia Rapid Test is simple and rapid test that can detect Chlamydia trachomatis antigen directly from swabs allow physicians to diagnose and administer
A.Specimens processing and control:
processing of cervical swabs and urethral swabs:
Place the specimen processing tubes on the worktable, and add 6 drops of solution A.
Put the sampling swab into the specimen processing tube, which contains solution A, and store at room temperature, and continuously rotate and squeeze the swab in the tube wall in the process, so that the liquid is constantly being squeezed out, and repeat it for several times and deal with it for 2 minutes.
Then add 6 drops of solution B, and rotate and squeeze swab, as far as possible make the liquid flow out, and then discard the swab in line with the handling method of infected goods.
If the specimens shall be used, within 60 minutes after treated, this will not affect detection results of the kit.
Notes: The dropping amount of solution A and solution B should be equal, when the swabs is processed
B. Detection steps:
Please read the instructions for the test kit carefully before operation.
Take out the test kit from the sealed bag, and place it in a clean, dry and level worktable, and label the sample number or name. If the test kit is stored at the place, which temperature is lower than room temperature, and the test kits and reagents required to be taken out in advance, and it should revert to room temperature before it is being used.
2 ~ 3 drops of processed specimens in the sample processing tube should be dripped into the sampling wells of the test kit.
Wait for the appearance of the results. 10 minutes after the specimens is dripped, the results can be interpreted. The time of the purple line varies in line with the contents of chlamydia, which is collected with swabs, and some positive samples may show the result after 60 seconds. In order to ensure the negative results, please do not judge the result after 15 minutes.
