qPCR Detection Kit
Mycoplasma hominis is a bacteria with the ability to penetrate the interior of human cells. Mycoplasmas are the smallest free-living organisms known. It causes a sexually transmitted disease. Mycoplasma hominis is associated with pelvic inflammatory disease and bacterial vaginosis. It is also associated with male infertility. This pathogen may latently infect the chorionic villi tissues of pregnant women, thereby impacting pregnancy outcome.

Did you know...?
Mycoplasma hominis belongs to the normal flora of the genital organs in sexually active people. Females are more susceptible to Mycoplasma hominis colonization, and the intensity of colonization depends on the number of partners. The bacterium is found in the genital tract of over 50% of sexually active women. Newborns are subject to temporary colonization during delivery. Mycoplasma hominis is the cause of maternal fever and infections after abortion in 10% of cases.
Why knowledge about Mycoplasma hominis is important?
There are many consequences of the disease. That is why it is worth having regular check-ups. Especially young and sexually active people. The test material for Mycoplasma hominis is: urethral smear and/or cervical smear for women, and urethral smear for men.
How the test is performed?
Virtually 100% certainty is provided by the PCR genetic test. The use of the Real-Time PCR technique based on the detection of bacterial genetic material enables sensitive and specific identification of the pathogen. Genetic material analysis using our reagents is fast and accurate. Following the IFU included in the kit, the technician can easily interpret the results. The reaction lasts about 45 min, and the temperature-time profile is selected so that the laboratory can analyze several genes simultaneously using one device. Ready-to-use reagents are included in the kit. It is enough for the lab technician to add each of them in the right proportion and the reaction is ready. Quickly, easily and professionally.
Why is it worth doing a genetic test?
Quick diagnosis will enable the implementation of treatment. Only by means of a genetic test are we able to detect the presence of the pathogen with 100% accuracy.
What can be done after the test result?
Treatment for both men and women is similar. Appropriate antibiotics prescribed by a doctor are used. The partner must also undergo treatment in order to prevent reinfection and the spread of the disease. After using the drugs, it is best to make a follow-up visit, you can also return the sample for testing. Once treated, however, the infection has a tendency to recur.
