The Chlamydia-Antigen Test is intended for the in vitro diagnostic use for the rapid, qualitative detection of chlamydia directly from female endocervical swabs and male urethral swabs as well as urine samples.
A chlamydia trachomatis infection is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases which includes severe, long term health consequences: approximately 5% of sexually active adults are infected with the chlamydia pathogen.
Genital chlamydia infections typically run an asymptomatic course. For men, the infection will typically be expressed as urethritis and for women as cervicitis. Severe complications can occur especially with pregnant women and newborns, such as premature birth, newborn conjunctivitis or pneumonia.
