What is STI DNA Test?

STI - Sexually Transmitted Infection

STIs are the most common infection in adults. There are more than 30 types of STI pathogens, transmitted
through sexual intercourse and contacts. Most common infections include Chlamydia, Trichomonas,
Gonorrhea, Mycoplasma and Ureaplasma.

At early stage in most cases, patients may not be aware of infection since there is no particular symptoms
but it's important to have proper treatment to avoid inflammation, infertility, ectopic pregnancy or
vertical infection, etc.

  • STI Characteristics

    Many cases of STIs are with multiple (complex) pathogens. Statistics
    show many STI patients are infected by 2 or more types of bacteria at the
    same time. Hence, identifying all pathogens of such infection is important for proper treatment.

  • High-efficiency Multiplexing

    TCM's multiplexing technology provides highly sensitive diagnostics
    with higher specificity, which determines infections of 6-30 pathogens
    It amplifies pathogen-specific DNA footprint and provides more accurate
    and information, far better than conventional microscopy or culture-based
    tests - resulting in better diagnosis and treatment.

  • Multiplexed Analysis

    One test simultaneously provides all required analysis:
    Test for multiple pathogens for complex infections can be
    done at once.

  • Accuracy

    DNA target amplification of specific pathogen enables
    accurate result.

  • High Sensitivity

    Molecular diagnosis on STIs provide more accurate and exact
    result at higher sensitivity compared to conventional microscopy
    and culture-based tests.
